SELC can arrange quality accommodation to suit your needs. Wherever possible, accommodation is located close to the school for your convenience. Homestay counselling is available and students are taught Australian customs and English expressions to help them settle into their homes.
Homestay is a wonderful way to experience Australian life while studying English and provides a great opportunity to learn and practise English. Staying with an Australian family is also a great cultural experience as you interact daily with local people!
SELC’s Homestay Program involves Australian families in the Eastern Suburbs who are visited and interviewed by our accommodation staff. Families are chosen for their high-quality accommodation, friendliness and interest in people from other cultures.
