Homestay families provide a safe and secure environment where the student is included as part of the family.

Homestay Information

International students live with a carefully selected Australian host family which provides a safe and secure environment for students living away from their own homes.

The family associated lifestyle helps students to adjust to Australian culture, assists with language and supports their learning programme. The Student Welfare and Accommodation Coordinator, Mrs Robyn Halliday, coordinates homestay accommodation and assists students with the following:

  • Reception on arrival in Adelaide
  • Visa advice
  • Medical insurance
  • Orientation Programme
  • Homestay placement and assistance
  • Day to day pastoral care
  • Excursions and social club activities
