Seeking New Canterbury Homestay Families For International Students | Earn $46 Per Night, Per Student – Overnight, Weekend, School Holidays, Short-Term & Long-Term Options

Dear Parents & Carers,

We have an opportunity for our Canterbury families to be part of our wonderful Homestay Program, welcoming international students into their home.

Each year, Canterbury hosts overseas students from different countries all around the world, to study here at Canterbury College, and often these students require a homestay placement.

We are now seeking additional homestay families in our local Canterbury Community, who can help if a student needs to move from their current homestay location temporarily.

Families can host these students on a short-term basis – such as for a weekend or during the school holidays, or in a temporary scenario, which could just be for one night or several nights.

The choice is yours, and it’s a wonderful chance for a mutual cultural and language exchange between the student/s and your own family.

There may also be options for longer term placements if this is preferred.

Homestay families are paid $46 per night, per student.

If you are interested and would like to know more about homestay hosting, please email Canterbury’s Homestay Coordinator Mrs Catherine Holden –
