Queensland Academies are committed to facilitating happy and supportive homestay arrangements for International (EQI) students requiring accommodation. We will enter into discussions with families seeking homestay in order to raise their awareness of the complexities of supporting a child in homestay over the three year period of study. This process may involve communication involving campus counselling staff, the homestay provider and the families wanting a homestay placement prior to commencement.
The Queensland Government enforces stringent homestay standards, ensuring high quality accommodation is arranged with convenient access to the Academy and that all homestay providers undergo orientation, training and police checks. For further details please visit the
Queensland Family and Child Commission website.
Please read through the
EQI homestay handbook (PDF, 2.6MB).
