Hosting an international student is a rewarding and enriching experience for you and your family. You will get to meet people from different cultures and many make lifelong friendships as a result.
Placements can be for as little as 2 days or as long as a whole school year.
The international student will become a part of your family, participating and contributing to family life. Students will expect to have their own room with all meals, laundry services and basic toiletries provided by you. In return you will receive payment for acting as a host and providing a safe and caring environment.
Throughout the homestay we will support you and the student to make sure that it is a positive experience.
