Homestay accommodation provides you opportunities to experience Australian family life and to improve your English language skills and get the most out of your travel and study experience by living with an Australian family and experiencing their lifestyle first hand. Homestay hosts’ lifestyles are very diverse as Australia is a multi-cultural country -, we come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. You will live in comfortable, clean and spacious homes. Usually Homestay Accommodation is located no more than 30 – 40 minutes travel time by public transport from Ashton College, and two meals per day (breakfast and dinner) during the week and three meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) on weekends will be included in the Homestay.
We can arrange an inexpensive bed and breakfast style hotel or a budget hostel on your arrival, if you are stikk deciding on the accommodation you prefer. Generally, the hotel price is about $130 per night for single person or $100 for budget hostel. Once in Ashton College, you can visit our Student Services Office to meet our staff to get further advice on your accommodation options.
In Shared Accommodation, you can live with other classmates or friends in an apartment, unit or house and you can be more independent and flexible. Usually, you pay rent for your room, pay a share of the utility bills (gas, electricity, telephone, internet and other cost.), buy your own food and do your own cooking. After your arrival we can provide advice on how you can look for shared accommodation.
