  • Homestay management and support throughout the entire homestay experience
  • Extensive national criminal background checks for hosts
  • Student support services including banking and transportation
  • Comprehensive online training and orientation for hosts and students
  • Professionally staffed 24/7 critical incident contact centre

How Our Homestays Work

Australian Homestay Network (AHN) will match each student with a host family located near the student’s place of education. The host will provide the student with a private bedroom, an agreed upon meal plan, and will assist the student in learning the local customs and transportation systems, as well as generally helping the student become acquainted with the Australian way of life. Students are encouraged to share information about their home cultures and countries, as our hosts also wish to have a unique cultural experience.

AHN is a national, standard-based homestay provider servicing major cities in every state and territory in Australia. In addition to the support of our regional teams, our guests and hosts have access to a 24/7 emergency response network to help ensure all participants has the best experience possible.

Our Hosts

Our hosts are carefully selected to ensure that our students are placed in environments that are not only safe and comfortable but also welcoming. Our hosts are truly interested in enjoying a shared cultural experience with their students. We conduct national criminal background checks, in-home interviews, and complete home inspections. We stay in contact with both the host and the student during the homestay period. We want all visiting students to have the most positive experience possible when beginning their educational journey in Australia.
