Our most popular accommodation option is to live with a local Australian family, who will provide you with a room, meals, a warm welcome and a chance to improve your English at home as well as at school.

Some UEC students report that living with an English-speaking host family has helped them learn English – as well as Australian customs and culture – faster and more naturally.
