Book with course enrolment

Where possible homestay accommodation should be booked with your course enrolment. A homestay application section is included in the application form.

If you decide to book homestay accommodation after you have already enrolled in your course or program, you can apply using the separate Homestay Application Form.

If you plan to book homestay accommodation after you arrive in Australia please note that it can take up to two weeks to place you with a homestay family.

Flight arrival details should be supplied when booking homestay (if they are available) or as soon as they are confirmed. It is important that you advise the ICTE-UQ Accommodation Office of your flight number and arrival time so that they can let your homestay family know when to expect you and book your airport reception service (if you have asked for this).

When will I receive information about my homestay family?

Information about your homestay family including name, address, family members living in the home, interests and contact details will be sent to you  before you start your course or program.
