Short term study tours

Short homestay programs from one to four weeks provide a great mix of education and cultural experience. The educational component can be tailored to group requirements, with intensive English study in the morning and school integration in the afternoon including half day or full day excursions or other special interest activities.

A member of the host family, (usually a student of Marryatville High School) is matched with each visiting student on a “buddy” system, travelling to and from school with them and helping the student understand the school’s routine and expectations.
