We have a responsibility to our students which means that we are unable to advertise or promote:

  • Commission only jobs
  • Jobs for current students that require a commitment of more than 15 hours per week during semester
  • Opportunities that require: unduly high participation fees by the applicant, the taking of medication such as participation in drug trials, writing for academic course-related materials which may be used by other students, ‘pyramid’ network or similar style selling schemes
  • Jobs, placements or other opportunities that we deem to be inappropriate or unsuitable for promotion to our students and graduates.

Advertisements and/or promotions must not:

  • Contain any material which is defamatory of any person.
  • Contain any material which is obscene, offensive, hateful or inflammatory.
  • Infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person.
