To help guide you through the application process, please view steps 1 to 6 below.
To begin, visit our Location Checker webpage.
Enter your details in the required fields along with your home address. Our location checking algorithm will calculate the distance by public transport from your home to universities and schools that we work with in your city.
Once you have completed your check, you should receive an email with your username and password for your new host portal.
The host portal will be your main point of contact with Study Vision. You will be able to manage bookings, current guests and update your details.
Before continuing on step 3, make sure the follow sections of your profile are complete:
Family members and pets
Bedrooms for hosting guests
Photos of bedrooms and common areas
General home details
After completing your profile, you can request an inspection of your place via the host portal. A member of the Study Vision team will conduct an assessment of your profile to confirm you have correctly completed each section and also whether you will be suitable for our guests.
Upon completing our assessment of your profile, a member from our host inspection team will be in contact with you to organise a visit. An inspection team member will go through our Homestay guidelines during the visit to make sure you understand your responsibilities as a host.
You will also need to sign Study Vision's Homestay Agreement, to signify that you are aware of your responsibilities, and agree to our terms.
Re-inspections may be required from time to time.
After your successful inspection, training and completion of the required documentation, you will be qualified to begin hosting with Study Vision.
