Homestay accommodation is a wonderful opportunity for students to practice their English language skills, share in New Zealand culture and form lifelong friendships. Homestay families and Cornell Institute of Business and Technology staff will do their best to make you feel comfortable and part of the family.
Younger students are likely to be dropped off and picked up by their homestay parents. Older students generally walk or take a bus. Our host families live close to Cornell Institute so that you will not have to travel long distances to the city each day.
You should arrive before 9:00 am in order to attend the orientation and placement test which will decide your level.
