Homestay Options for Adult Students

Homestay accommodation is where you live with an Australian family in their home. This gives you the opportunity to improve your English and learn more about Australian culture. Homestay can be a great 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 the option that best suits your needs. Contact Reception/Student Services to help you arrange homestay. You must provide your flight details at least 4 weeks before the start of your course or as soon as possible. Some homestay websites are below:

WCE makes sure your homestay accommodation is appropriate for your age and needs. We make sure any adults involved in your accommodation and welfare arrangements have Working with Children Clearances (or equivalent). This includes WCE staff, homestay arrangement providers, homestay residents and parents. We will interview you, ask you to complete homestay surveys and we will receive updates about homestay site visits from the homestay arrangement provider. It is important you are safe at all times and we take your welfare seriously.
