SCE has a long running homestay program for both adult and underage students. Homestay offers students the opportunity to live in a safe and caring environment while they can learn the local lifestyle and culture, make friends, and continuously practice and improve their English skills. On the other hand, homestay offers the host family the opportunity to learn about other cultures, act as ambassadors of Sydney, and develop international, long-lasting friendships.
Homestay families can elect to host males only/females only, adults only/kids only, or happy with anyone. Our students study for all different purposes and with different goals so there can be short-term students learning some English while on holidays and also long-term students preparing to move into an Australian high school or tertiary course. Students arrive with varying English levels and come from all different countries and cultural backgrounds.
Joining the SCE Homestay Program offers security in your homestay placements as SCE is an intermediary between students and families, dealing with all bookings, payments, and changes, and helping to mediate any concerns that should arise.
A weekly fee is paid by SCE to cover the student’s stay including all food, utilities, and laundry use.

We are sad to announce that due to the impact of COVID-19, Sydney College of English is no longer delivering classes. As of Monday 1st June 2020, all current students transferred to IH Sydney where they will continue in the same course of study. SCE staff are still available to assist with any queries until Friday 26th June 2020. Please do not hesitate to contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a proud member of the ELICOS community in Sydney since 1987, SCE has been an influential place in the lives of the many staff and students who have been a part of the school over the years. As a place of education and growth, SCE strove to fulfil its mission: “to provide an environment in which students of any age are given the support to become capable, confident communicators who flourish and have successful lives as they continue to learn and develop their skills.” We have been touched by the heartfelt comments that we have received from past students and staff about their time at SCE and would like to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to the life of the college over the years. Quality, experience, success and personalised care have been at the heart of SCE and we are confident that these values will live on in the students and staff. We are proud of everything we have achieved and wish everyone who has been a part of this journey, the very best for the future.
