Many universities offer on-campus residences either on the university grounds or nearby. You can live off- campus in a flat, apartment or house rented from a real estate agent or private landlord. Many students choose to share accommodation and the cost of rent. Another option for the international student is homestay where you live with an Australian family. Your institution can help organise a homestay with a family that fits your needs. For school students, there is a range of private boarding schools in Sydney and across NSW. At boarding school, you usually share a room and all meals are included. International students can work up to 20 hours per week during term and full-time in the holiday breaks. There are plenty of part-time work opportunities for international students throughout Sydney and NSW.
