While you are part of the homestay program, EQI encourages you to participate in travel and activities to enhance your experiences while living and studying in Queensland. EQI ensures appropriate arrangements are in place to ensure your safety. As a homestay student, you will require approval prior to participating in certain travel and activities not arranged by the school (non-routine and routine activities). This requirement is explained in the Travel and activities section of the Standard terms and conditions.

Routine activities for Homestay students

While living in homestay you must discuss routine activities with your homestay provider and comply with homestay provider decisions. Routine activities includes travel to and from school or off-site school activities, everyday travel with the homestay provider, and normal domestic activities such as shopping, entertainment, sports, visiting friends and health care consultations. It does not include overnight stays away from your homestay address.
