Student services

Our Student Services Officer chooses and inspects each “homestay” family very carefully. Before a family can join the programme, they must guarantee that they will provide a high standard of accommodation and facilities, and they must be friendly and willing to look after you. SCE visits each home. When a student leaves they are asked to fill in a questionnaire about their stay so we can make sure our standards are maintained. Homestay is a wonderful way of making new friends – the families we choose genuinely enjoy having overseas students and often keep in touch with them after they have moved on.

Housing services

We do our best to make you feel safe and welcome from the moment you arrive in Australia, and to provide you with opportunities to use English as much as possible. One way of achieving this is by your choosing to live with an Australian family during your time in Sydney. This will help you meet some wonderful people and get a better understanding of the Australian way of life.
