Arrange Under 18 Care

Under 18 Care

If you are Under 18 when you study with us, but do not have a parent or guardian to stay with while you are in Sydney, we can help you with accommodation and care arrangements.

You have a choice of accommodation in either student accommodation Unilodge@UNSW or a homestay that we approve.

All under 18 students are required to complete a Care and Appropriate Welfare form (CAAW) on application. On this form you will tell us where you are planning to live and when you plan to arrive in Australia.

When we are confident that your accommodation is suitable, we will send you approval of and Student Advisers will arrange regular compulsory meetings during your studies to monitor your wellbeing, care and accommodation.

This comprehensive monitoring service means that an additional fee is charged.

Please note that for courses commencing in 2017, the monitoring fee includes a set-up charge of AUD$150 plus AUD$49 per week while you are under 18 years of age.
