Become a Homestay Host family for our International Students!

As we prepare to welcome new International Students to our Long Bay College community, we invite you to become a part of our Homestay Host family team.  Hosting an International Student is a unique opportunity to open up new experiences for your family and embark on a journey of personal and cultural growth.

Welcoming students from all corners of the world can be an incredibly enriching experience, not only for the students but also for the host families.  It’s a chance to share your culture, create lifelong memories, and forge meaningful connections that transcend borders.

Whether you’re considering a long-term or short-term hosting arrangement for the 2024 academic year, we have options to suit your availability.

If you have a spare room in your home and are willing to offer a caring and supportive family environment, we encourage you to reach out to our International Accommodation Coordinator, Tian Yang –

Tian can provide you with all necessary information, answer any questions you may have, and guide you through the process.

We believe that by joining our Homestay Host family team, you’ll not only enrich the lives of the International Students you host but also gain a deeper understanding of different cultures, broaden your horizons, and create lasting bonds with young people from around the world.

Your participation in this program will contribute to the global education experience of our students and enhance the warmth and diversity of our Long Bay College community.

We look forward to working with you and are excited about the positive impact you can make on the International Students lives.  Thank you for considering this wonderful opportunity.
