What is homestay?

Homestay is a popular choice for international students of all ages. When you live with a local family, you benefit from the care and support of your hosts. Your host family:

  • Guides you in your daily life
  • Introduces you to local customs and cultures
  • Helps you to enhance your social and communication skills.

Why Homestay?

Homestay offers you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in Australian society. You will:

  • Experience an authentic local lifestyle
  • Improve your English daily
  • Make lifelong friends.

MEGA works with Study Vision for the provision of homestay services.

You will enjoy these great benefits when you choose the homestay option:

  • Flexible bookings of 4-week stays. Give 2 weeks’ notice when you are ready to move on
  • 50% off rentals when you go on holidays for 2 weeks or more
  • 24/7 support with Study Vision’s multilingual student care team.

MEGA places students based on preferences and availability and matches host families with students near their place of study.
