Most students enjoy Kiwi hospitality and learn more about the local lifestyle by staying with one of our carefully chosen homestay families. Our homestays are located on a direct bus/train route and they provide students with 2 meals a day from Monday to Friday and 3 meals on weekends. Students under 18 years of age are required to be in an approved homestay for the duration of their course at Kiwi English Academy.


Students who are over 18 years old and want to be more independent may choose to live in a hostel. One of the hostels that we recommend to students is located in Epsom, just 15 minutes walk from our school. Students have access to communal cooking and bathroom facilities as well as shared recreation areas. Different room configurations are available. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
