Homestays are a great way to experience Aussie life whilst studying in the country. It can also provide for a great opportunity for international students wanting to learn and practice their English skills as well as offering an insight into our culture and way of life. The experience can be very rewarding and many life-long friendships are made.
The College recommends students use the company Australian Homestay Network (AHN) when searching for a homestay. AHN is Australia’s most well-known and largest homestay provider and are committed to ensuring that each experience is enriching, safe and memorable for both hosts and guests. AHN will match each student with a host family living close to ICMS, the host will offer a private bedroom, a previously agreed upon meal plan and will help the student in learning the local transportation systems and local customs.
