Homestay Host

Homestay Direct welcomes you as a representative of our agency to accommodate an international student into your home. We welcome new and experienced hosts to earn an income while learning about other cultures.

Usually an international student has chosen to live in a Homestay because they want to learn English and become familiar with our Australian culture and learn about our city while being looked after in a safe and caring environment. Becoming a host family should not only be viewed only as an opportunity to earn an income by providing a service, but also as an opportunity to help and support visiting students settle into our country.

Students come from all over the world, and western cultures are very different and there is no “Right” or “Wrong” just different. The host family plays a VITAL role in the successful stay of a student in our country not only for our business but also for the international education industry of Australia.

International students looking for accommodation usually have 3 choices when they arrive in Australia,

  1. Homestay
  2. City Apartments
  3. Share Accomodation
