We highly recommend our homestay program because it gives you a unique Australian cultural and English language experience.
When you choose homestay, the Department will take responsibility for your welfare.
On behalf of the department, your school will carefully select your homestay family from the local school community. This will include:
- conducting child-safe screening by regularly visiting the homestay and conducting Working with Children checks on all members of the homestay family who are over 18 years of age
the department ensuring your school meets rigorous government standards.
Victoria has many different types of families and communities.
"My host family are also such hospitable people with warm hearts and always willing to support me whichever pathway I choose to take in the future. I appreciate and cherish them a lot because without their help, I would not become the new version of myself now." - Hoai, international student 2021.
