Why not become an EQI homestay host?​

Homestay hosts come in all shapes and sizes. Everyone has an opportunity to play a part in sharing their life, home and provide memories and cultural experiences to an international high school student. Homestay families provide our international students with a secure and welcoming place to live and practise their English language skills in a real home setting. The length stay may vary from a term to an entire year.

​Hosts receive

  • Financial assistance in the amount of $640 a fortnight (per student) to help cover costs of hosting an international student.
  • Cultural links and friendships with students and families from around the world.
  • ​A lifetime of memories.

Hosts provide

  • A clean, safe and friendly home
  • A private bedroom with a desk and suitable storage space for the student’s clothes, personal belongings and study materials.
  • Three nutritious meals per day.
  • ​Assistance to access transport to and from school and for school-related activities.​

Host requirement

To ensure student safety, each adult (aged 18 and over) in your household is screened via a police check and must obtain a ‘Blue Card’, Queensland’s monitoring system for people, who work with children.​
