International Students

Tenison Woods College is a popular destination for International Students as it offers an excellent academic program in a safe, clean and beautiful environment.

Tenison Woods College offers Homestay accommodation to international students, providing the opportunity to live with an Australian family. Living in an Australian home allows students the unique opportunity to experience the Australian culture first hand, to practise and improve their English language skills and to make new friends.

The International Homestay Program at Tenison Woods College provides students with a safe, warm and friendly family environment. Living with a new family in a culture that may be very different from the student’s own family can sometimes be a challenging process. Tenison Woods College employs a Homestay Coordinator, Mrs Annie Clifford who ensures that all International Students settle in quickly and form a friendly, happy relationship with their Homestay family.
