Host a Student / Homestay Information

Hosting an International Student in your home is such a rewarding experience. It allows people of different cultures and languages to live together and learn together, often forming life-long friendships.

Our students are looking for a home away from home. Hosts provide not just room and board but a safe, supportive and welcoming environment. Parents of the students you host feel comforted in the knowledge that their child is being taken good care of overseas and they have a warm environment in which to flourish.

Qualities that we look for when selecting our hosts are: ­

  • A family who will embrace cultural differences and realise it is an opportunity to learn from each other. ­
  • A family who will involve them in activities. ­
  • A family who is sensitive and realises that students will need nurturing and support as it is often overwhelming to be so far away from home.
  • A family that wants to take part in a positive and mutual learning experience.
  • A family where all members are flexible enough to accept a student with a different language and cultural background than their own.
