Homestay gives you the opportunity to live with an Australian family in their home. Homestay can be a good option for younger students as you will have a supportive family environment and a home away from home.
Some homestay options include meals and others are self-catered so you can choose an option that suits your needs.
Before accepting a homestay family, you can specify any special needs and the Homestay Provider will try and find a homestay to suit. Families offering homestay accommodation are thoroughly screened to ensure they can provide a suitable living environment for students.
Homestay usually costs between $200 -$300 a week depending on how many meals per day you would like.
