Arranging accommodation in a foreign country can be daunting; Australian Internships wants you to enjoy your stay in Australia and we are happy to assist with your accommodation arrangements. Following are brief descriptions of the accommodation options available to you:
We recommend homestay as a great personal introduction and welcome to the daily life in Australia. Living with an Australian family will give you a unique insight into the culture and values of our country and assist in preparing you for the business environment. All homestay families are carefully selected and keen to ensure you enjoy your visit to Australia. After indicating your homestay preferences, Australian Internships will take the time to make sure that you have a homestay provided to meet your specific needs. The fees for homestay vary and are influenced by your choice of location. Please refer to the price section of this website for details on the homestay rates.
We also have a wide range of Student Residential which offers a unique opportunity to live and interact with students from all over Australia and the world. You can choose from private room, double room, triple room or more with ensuite or not. Student Residential are usually located near shops, cafes and restaurant and include a kitchen and lounge and sometimes Gymnasium. Internet and laundry are available at extra cost.
Accommodations are available in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne:
If you are interested in any of the above options or wish to enquire about other locations, please contact your Internship Program Supervisor.
Many interns prefer to find their own accommodation but they still ask us to arrange initial accommodation for their arrival.
Several inexpensive and safe hostels are available in each location. Prices start from AUD$18 per night or AUD$125 per week. Specific information will be supplied at your request. For detailed information on hostels please visit www.hostelworld.com
Share accommodation is available in most major cities of Australia. Many visitors choose to share flats or units with other Australian students or young singles and this option is popular for the independent interns who enjoy their own space. We strongly advise that you take the time to meet and view the premises for a share option after your arrival as they will vary quite dramatically, as will the people providing the accommodation. A popular website for share accommodation is www.shareaccommodation.com.
