And we’re here to help you

Our International Student Welfare and Accommodation Coordinator is only ever a phone call away, and works closely with students and their host families from the get-go.

All host families are screened to ensure they can provide a safe and secure environment, so that each student can flourish while living away from home.

By working together with our community, we’re fortunate to be able to offer a range of Homestay host family environments who are as diverse and varied as our students.
