Host Students with Lexis Noosa or Maroochydore

We are looking for long term homestay families for our next intake of trainee Pilots! Current and new families welcome!

So far, this program has been very successful with our current students and we are now looking for more families who are wanting to host up to 2 students in their home. These students are the elite of their class and are offered a Helicopter Pilot Traineeship only after years of dedication while displaying the highest commitment to their academic pursuits. They strive to achieve excellent academic results as they need to reach a suitable level of English before starting their traineeship with Becker Helicopters.

Lexis English has been teaching Saudi students for the past 4 years and they are very friendly and studious, are very generous, have a great sense of family values and are well mannered. They keep busy with their studies and social life, and will often be away during the weekends. The length of their stay can be from 6 to 12 months, although the duration of the stay is entirely up to the homestay family. Average age is 22 years old.

This is a great opportunity to host a long-term student, and the requirements are as follows:

  • Have their own bathroom or shared bathroom with another male student (max 2 students per family)
  • Have a fully furnished room for each student
  • Be located within a maximum of 10 minutes' drive from the College and close to public transport (they will most likely purchase a car after arrival)
  • Not serve pork to the students (it is ok to have pork for other members of the family though)


Rate for half-board, own bathroom (breakfast & dinner on weekdays, 3 meals on weekends):

$270/week per student (tax free income)


If you are interested and meet the above criteria, or if you know anyone who might benefit and be interested in becoming a host family, please contact our Accommodation Department in Noosa on 07) 5447 4448 or our Accommodation Department in Maroochydore on 07) 5479 2272 or complete the online contact form here.
