Living with a local family, couple or single person can be a good way to familiarise yourself with your new environment. For international students, it's a further opportunity to practise your English language skills and learn about the Australian lifestyle.

Minimum length of stay is 4 weeks. Normally, full board is provided (your own furnished room plus meals). Electricity, water and gas are included, too. Costs for full board are approximately $250 - $300 per week, as well as the application fee.

Apply to Australian Homestay Network. To increase your chances of a match with a suitable host, remember to apply at least six weeks before your arrival in Adelaide.
