Study in Australia at the English School you can trust. AICOL stayed open during COVID and we made a full refund to every student and agent who claimed. As a result many students and agents have told us we are the best English school in Australia!

We hold your student visa fees and homestay fees in a trust account and draw down weekly only after course commencement. This is what enabled us to refund all fees during COVID and we have continued to operate on the same basis.

Do we recommend Homestay?
This really depends on what you are wanting to achieve?
Conversation practice?  Safety?  Experience Australian culture?
Make Aussie friends? Meals provided? You can meet your homestay before you leave home. We operate our own homestay placement service for AICOL students.

There is always someone available at school to talk about homestay matters.
Young Learners are welcome in homestay with/without a parent.
We can arrange for homestays to drive students to and from school each day. With enough notice we can usually arrange homestay for whole families who want to study English.

Homestay conversation is very valuable and students to learn to speak English fluently.
If you are unwell the homestay will look after you. Sometimes homestay meetings result in lifelong friendships and perhaps somewhere for you to stay overseas.
