Homestay Program


Hosting an international student is a culturally enriching experience for everyone involved. Homestay families welcome the student as a valued member of the family a​nd share Australian lifestyle experiences with the student.  Students, in return, are expected to show consideration, courtesy and respect for the homestay family.

​Burnside SHS hosts Study Abroad students from one term to one year and Study Tour students from 7-14 days.  Homestay providers of Study abroad students receive an allowance of $233 per week and Homestay providers of Short term study tour students receive an allowance of $28/day to cover costs associated with providing meals, accommodation and access to all amenities for the duration of the student’s visit.
