Families are carefully selected for their warmth and genuine interest in the students’ wellbeing.
All homes are located close to public transport and not more than 40 minutes from the college.
Your bedroom will be furnished with a single or double bed, a wardrobe, a dressing table or chest of drawers, adequate lighting and a desk. If there is no desk in the bedroom, you will have a space elsewhere in the house where you can study comfortably.
Breakfast and dinner are included every day. Lunch is also included at the weekends.
Internet access at the homestay is not usually included but can be arranged as a supplement upon request. All students will have free unlimited internet access from our computer lounge and WiFi service at school.
Your laundry will be included in the family wash although ironing, handwashing or dry cleaning are your responsibility.
We have a dedicated Homestay coordinator who ensures that our students are always taken care of. We regularly inspect homes to ensure that the high standards are maintained. We actively collect feedback from all students about their stay with their host family to ensure that they feel comfortable and welcome
Homestay requirements & preferences
At the time of enrolment, we will need to know your homestay requirements before we can arrange the placement.
We will also give you the opportunity to indicate homestay preferences which we will try to honour as much as possible when finalising the match.
ELC can also organise homestay placements for students with special needs such as specific dietary requirements, executive homestay, or room with private bathroom.
Ideal for students who:
- want to experience the Australian way of life
- would like to receive the support and advice from a host family
- want to maximize their studies and do not want to look after shopping and cooking
