Student Pricing

The Australian Homestay Network operates in regions across Australia. Each region has student pricing specific to the living costs and services being made available in that region. Please choose your region from the list below:

Please contact us directly if your preferred or selected region is not shown above.

We are always looking at developing additional areas through Australia.

Placement Fee

The placement fee is a one time only fee paid at the time of student application. Once we have begun working on your placement, the placement fee is non-refundable, unless your Visa is denied. The placement fee includes finding you a well-matched host family. Airport transfer via private driver is available at an additional cost. Pricing varies between regions and can be found by selecting a state within our service regions.

Homestay Fee Model

Stay Period

The standard minimum stay is 4 weeks. You must give your host 2 weeks notice of your intent to move out. If your Visa is denied all fees are refundable. Partial weeks will be calculated at a daily rate. If you wish to stay fewer than 4 weeks, or are a minor student, please complete your application and contact us for details.

Meal Plans

Meal plans vary, depending on how many meals you’d like your host to provide daily. All homestays have private rooms with a bed, study area and wardrobe for personal belongings. Laundry facilities and all utilities are included in the homestay price. Internet connection fees will be an additional cost. We also have a No Meals option for more independent students.


Upon acceptance of your application you will be invoiced for the first 4 weeks. We will send you or your agent an invoice every 4 weeks.


Payment can be made via Visa or Mastercard, or direct transfer into our Australian bank account. All details are provided on your invoice.


Pricing varies depending on age, location, preferred level of service and additional requirements. For minors (under 18 years of age) there may be different prices as hosts for minors are specifically trained and certified to support younger guests.

I loved my room, it had a internet and a TV. The bus stop was right outside and took me right to school.
