Homestay Information For Families

Australian Student Accommodation is an established accommodation service offered to education providers and International students. We work with a number of language schools to place students in suitable homes while they study on the Gold Coast, in Brisbane and Northern New South Wales.
Homestay can be a great cultural experience for the whole family with generous remuneration. We are currently seeking new host families who are able to host under 18 students on short term (1-2 week) study tours from January to March and July to August. You must be able to provide all meals and transport to and from school each day. Wireless internet is often required.

All over 18 permanent residents of a host family must hold a current Blue Card and we can assist with Blue Card registration.

Homestay Information For Students
Would you like to stay with an Australian Family while studying in South East QLD or Northern NSW?
Homestay provides a safe, protected environment from the moment you arrive, without the worry of finding somewhere to live; having electricity and telephone connected and not having to do the shopping. Your family will also help with familiarising you to your new surroundings and the journey to your place of study. You will have your own room (if you have not requested twin-share) usually with a study desk and a comfortable bed and two or three meals a day depending upon the package that you have requested.
For more mature students, since families live close to a bus-stop, families do not provide transport unless this has been specifically requested and students are expected to catch a bus to their place of study. Unless you have requested “Room Only” the Homestay family will spend evening meals with you and converse with you so that your level of English will greatly improve.
Homestay should be a positive and rewarding experience. All families have undergone an orientation process, homes have been inspected and your family will have support from the Homestay Coordinators if they experience any difficulties hosting students. Families apply to take part in the program to experience a cross cultural exchange, to learn from you about your country and to teach their children to understand people from all over the world.
Although Homestay may require you to confront fundamental differences between cultures and a different way of living, the benefits certainly outweigh any problems you may encounter. Australian Student Accommodation staff are here to ensure you have a successful Homestay experience whilst living and studying in Brisane, on the Gold Coast, or in Northern New South Wales and will do everything in our power to assist you to achieve this goal.
We have over 1000 friendly families waiting to welcome you into their home and hearts. If you would like to become part of an Australian family to help improve your English while studying, please complete the Homestay Application Form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org HOMESTAY APPLICATION FORM
