Discover English can make accommodation arrangements upon request for homestay placements or student residence. All accommodation services we recommend are checked by Discover English, so you can be assured you are staying in a safe environment.


We have an extensive homestay network that benefits students by introducing them to Australian culture and family life. Homestay facilitates cultural exchange and provides students with the opportunity to constantly practise English with Australian families. Students learn about Australian culture by immersing themselves in it, experiencing new food, activities, and attitudes.

Discover English approves all homestay providers and places students according to individual needs and preferences where possible.  There are two options available:

Half board: Includes breakfast and dinner weekdays and 3 meals on weekends.

Room only: Single room with no meals, but students can have access to the kitchen.

Student Lodge

If you would like a little more independence, Le Student 8 provides quality campus-style accommodation with everything you could want for making friends, having fun, and successful study.

The rooms for students include a microwave oven for heating up meals and there are also fully equipped kitchens where you can cook with other students and share costs.

Airport pick up

I am so happy with my homestay family, I feel like I am at home…They look after me and they treat me like I am part of their family. If I have any problems or questions they always help me. Since I have been living with them my English has improved a lot, I believe I am having a real Australian experience. My mum homestay cooks delicious meals I have tried so many different kind of food. My homestay is very good located just 10 minutes from the city by train.

I am happy living with this family, I feel very comfortable, and they have made my experience away from my family much easier to handle.
