It's wise to arrive a few days before the beginning of your English language program in Melbourne. Allow yourself enough time to get familiar with the city and its transportation system, move into your accommodation, and set up cell phone service if required. Learn more


When you arrive, it can be easier to stay in temporary housing, like a homestay, for a month or two. This will give you time to get to know Melbourne, make friends, and look for more permanent accommodation. At LAB in Melbourne, we work with expert service OZiHOUSE Group, who provide Homestay, Student Residences, Hostels and Airport Pickups.
