Accommodation and Homestay

The school arranges homestay accommodation for students. Living with a New Zealand family helps to improve English and real friendships are formed.

Many of our students return to New Zealand to visit their homestay families. All families are carefully selected and have undergone a police vetting procedure. Some families are large in size and some have just a host mother. Nearly all families have pets (usually a dog or cat). Families do not live in apartments but in detached houses with a garden. The International staff will give consideration to student preferences and requests where possible. All students will have their own fully furnished bedroom and share the other facilities with their host family.
