Steps to become a homestay

Step 1 Homestay Application:

Please read the Code of Conduct and Quality Service Expectations carefully.
Complete the Homestay Application form. Please ensure that you answer every question.

Step 2 Criminal History Screening:

Complete the Child Related Employment Screening (criminal history screening) form - downable here (pdf). You do not need to do this if you already have a current clearance from the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI). The Child Related Employment Screening clearance is valid for 3 years. All persons over the age of 18 residing in your home (except international students studying in a South Australian government school) are required to have a Child Related Employment Screening clearance.

Step 3 Submit your forms: 

Submit your Homestay Application form online. Submit your original Child Related Employment Screening form (or current DCSI clearance letter) for each person over the age of 18 residing in your home directly to your school.

Step 4 Home visit and interview:

The final step to become a homestay is a visit and interview in your home. Once your application has been assessed and satisfactory criminal history screening/s has been received, our school Study Tour coordinator will contact you to arrange a home visit and interview. We will explain your obligations in more detail and answer any questions that you may have.

You are now ready to host a student!

If successful, you will be accredited as one of our valued homestays and we look forward to allocating a Study Tour student to stay with your family! 

Feedback from Modbury High School host families indicates that it is a rewarding and enriching experience. Families hosting international students learn about other cultures and traditions, participate in activities and socialise with other host families and develop lasting friendships with their student and family.
