While studying at St Mary’s College, International learners have two options for their accommodation
St Mary’s College does not offer hostel accommodation.
International learners must live in accommodation approved by the College. Student’s safety and wellbeing is a priority to help support them as they settle into a new country and education system.
The homestay arrangement plays a critical role in making our International learners feel welcome. Our homestay co-ordinator Philly Smyth looks after arranging this for our International learners and provides the link between our International learner and the Homestay family. Student’s are provided with a full furnished room, a study desk, internet access, all meals, and laundry facilities.
The second accommodation option is for the International learner to stay with a caregiver arranged by the student’s family.
Designated caregivers are relatives or close family friends designated in writing by a parent or legal guardian of an international student under 18 years as the caregiver and accommodation provider for that student.
