Become an International Homestay – Embrace Cultural Exchange

As we warmly welcome new International Students into our Long Bay College community, we invite you to become a cherished member of our Homestay Host family team.  Hosting an International Student is a unique adventure, opening doors to new experiences for your family and embark on a journey of personal and cultural growth.

Imagine welcoming students from all corners of the world into our home. It’s not just an incredibly enriching experience for the students but also for you as the host family.  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 2024/2025 academic year, we have flexible options to match 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 – [email protected]

Tian will provide you with all necessary information, answer your questions, and guide you every step of the way.

By joining our Homestay Host family, 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 enhance the global education experience of our students and add to 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 incredibly opportunity!
