The wellbeing and safety of students living away from home is a priority for Woodcroft College.

No matter which Study Option a student chooses, they will live with a local caring family who are nurturing and part of our community. Students will receive the same consideration and protection as other family members.

Homestay accommodation is arranged and managed by our Student Services and Homestay Coordinator who interacts with the students every day at school.

Families are carefully selected to find the best match for the student and details of the family are forwarded to the Education Agent and family of the student for approval. All our Homestay families must go through an application process, home visits, with relevant clearances and reference checks for all household members over 18 years.

All Full-Time and Study Abroad students will have their own furnished bedroom, including a desk for study. Study Tour students may need to share a bedroom.

Our international students will be encouraged to interact with their Homestay family as this will help with their English skills and settling into the Australian culture. Students will participate in weekend activities which could include family functions, trips, entertainment and shopping.

Homestay families live near the College or in surrounding suburbs. Transport options include their Homestay family, the Woodcroft College school bus (free of charge) or public transport. No student will experience a lengthy travel time to school.

How to become a Homestay Family

Providing a home for an international student can be a very rewarding experience in the sharing of cultures and supporting a student to adjust to life in Australia. Homestay can be provided for students attending the College for short-term or full-time study programs.

Woodcroft College welcomes applications to become a Homestay family. To learn more about our expectations of a Woodcroft College Homestay family, please download our Homestay Handbook below or contact our Homestay Coordinator at [email protected]. If you have a relevant and up-to-date Working with Children Check (WWCC), please send this with your application.
