Homestay

Homestay involves the student living with an Australian family. Rooms may be single or shared and cost will vary accordingly.

  • First Day: Host Families take the student and explain the directions to Academia prior to, or on the first day. Host Families assist with timetables, purchasing tickets, train, tram and bus numbers and stops.
  • Illness: Host families assist the student if medical/dental appointments are required. Students will receive their Health Cover card on average within three weeks of their induction day. Please advise the student they may still go to the doctor (even without their health cover card) keep the receipt, and then claim their expenses once they receive their card.
  • Bedroom: The student's room is to have a comfortable bed, wardrobe, linen, a desk, desk lamp and a chair. The Homestay family also provides towels.
  • Meals: The Homestay provides three meals a day. Lunch may be a packed, cut lunch consisting of a sandwich, fruit and drink, or other food if the student prefers. The students may prefer to buy their own lunch.
  • Toiletries: Students supply their own shampoo and toothpaste. Soap and toilet paper are to be provided by the Homestay.
  • Laundry: The Homestay is required to do the washing for the student. The student is responsible for their ironing if they are over eighteen years old. High school students require a clean white shirt each day for school. Linen should be changed once a week.
