Studying Support and Homestay Support

Our college provides our international students with academic guidance and support throughout their studies, wellbeing and engagement support by our International Student Program team and wellbeing support services.

Our college sources our homestay families within the local community that is close to school. All hosts conduct background and safety checks to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students. We keep regular contact with the homestay family to support our students to make sure they are transitioning happily to their environment.

Empowerment of young people throughout their education and forming life-long friendships are often the most memorable highlights described by our international students.

Prior to arrival, our international student program team will remain in contact with you to ensure transition is smooth. All international students participate in an Orientation Program where they will be matched with a suitable buddy on commencement to explain the routine and school arrangements.
