Homestay

AIC Homestay Accommodation

Homestays are rewarding for students allowing them to become a part of a family.

The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 requires schools to ensure that students coming to study in New Zealand are safe and properly cared for. Therefore students living in homestay are required to live in AIC homestay only, organised and managed by AIC or AIC's homestay provider. 

All families are police-vetted, and regularly monitored through home visits and interviews with the student.

Homestay includes

  • A bedroom with a desk and chair for studying
  • Bedside lamp
  • Bed with linen and warm bedding
  • A heater, rubbish bin and laundry basket
  • A chest of drawers and/or wardrobe
  • Three meals a day, seven days a week
  • Initial airport pickup
  • Internet access

Students are expected to behave as a member of the family. They will be expected to help with minor chores like setting the table and doing the dishes at meal times, make their beds and keep their room clean and tidy.
