Accommodation options for over 18s

Living with a local family is a great way for you to experience life in Australia and practise your spoken English. All of our homestays have been specially chosen to ensure that you're provided with a safe and supportive home environment. Each home is within 45-60 minutes travelling time from the campus, in a variety of locations around Sydney.

​This is a fantastic opportunity to live like a local and have an authentic Australian lifestyle experience. 

Why choose homestay

  • It's the perfect way to make new friends - many of our Homestay students stay in touch with their Australian host families long after they leave.
  • If you're learning English - it's a great way to practice your language skills every day in a fun, relaxed home environment.
  • Homestay students can experience what it's really like living with an Australian family. You can learn all about their family life and values, interact with people of different ages and share their culture and interests.
