Become a Host Family

“Hosting is one of the best things I have done. My children have made so many friends from hosting international students over the years. We have really enjoyed the process and highly recommend it!” – TL Wee, Host Family

Hosts play a valuable role for students whether they are students from regional WA or overseas. ASC International is proud of our in-house Homestay Program which ensures the safety and welfare of our students. We have a range of hosting options from short to long term stays. Your home will be an environment where students feel safe, supported and included.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged, to become a homestay host. We recognise that hosts come from a variety of cultural backgrounds and different family compositions. Hosts can be singles, couples, families, single-parent families, empty nesters, the list goes on. We do not place bias on household make up, religion or culture. We focus on the host’s ability to provide a positive homestay experience for their students and pay particular attention to matching the right student to the right host.
