Our Student Contact Officer can help you find private rental accommodation by advising you on where to look and some of the issues for students renting in Australia.
For those who want to experience Australian life at home, Homestay is the best choice. It costs a little more than renting, but you will learn so much more. The money you pay simply covers the living costs, including all meals, bills, rent and so on. Most Homestay families are very experienced with International Students. Here are some tips to make home life more comfortable:
|Accommodation fee||$260 week|
|Homestay room no food||$220 week|
|Homestay share no food||$190 week|
|Students living together||$90 to $180 week|
|Applicants under 18|
|Accommodation fee||$280 week|
|Guardianship fee||$40 week|
|Guardianship set up fee||$170|
Not all arrangements are perfect and it is no problem for us to change your host family if necessary, but please discuss this with our Student Contact Officer at least two weeks in advance.
If the student wishes to cancel the Homestay arrangement completely, 80% of the Homestay Fees paid will be refunded to the student.
If a student wishes to change their accommodation, they must inform their Homestay family two weeks in advance. Otherwise 50% of those two weeks accommodation fees must be paid and the student will only receive 80% of the Homestay Fees that have been paid for the remaining weeks.
