Host family
Living with an Australian family is the best way to improve your language skills outside of school. You’ll stay in a single room and you’ll practise English every day at breakfast and dinner with your hosts, who will show you their culture and city in their own unique way! Families usually live 60-90 minutes from the school by public transport; on your first day, they will show you how to buy your travel card and how to reach the school. Bed linen, towels are provided, laundry once per week is included, but Wi-Fi has a weekly fee of $10.

Studio (4-week minimum stay)
Located in the very heart of the city, this residence is only a 17-minute walk to Kaplan Melbourne. You will stay in a practical single studio which will allow you to enjoy your independence and still be next door to your new friends. Your studio features a double bed with an en-suite bathroom, WiFi, a study area and a well-equipped kitchenette, among other amenities. Common areas include a gym, a library, a cinema room and lounge areas. Laundry services come at an extra cost while linen changing and room cleaning are students’ responsibility.

Take advantage of the exciting activity programme organised by Kaplan Melbourne and immerse yourself in Australian culture! The programme allows students to explore the city while making new friends and speaking English outside the class. Some activities are free of charge, like movie nights and soccer game nights, while others require an additional fee. While you learn English in Melbourne, you’ll be able to enjoy the city’s cultural and creative vibes, practise sports and bask in the Aussie sunshine, see penguins on Philip Island, and marvel at breath-taking landscapes on the Great Ocean Road tour.
