A Successful Student Experience Starts With a Great Homestay

Homestay Students Are More Likely To Achieve Academic Goals

Our education partners often tell us that students who were welcomed into the country by one of our trained hosts were much better students and achieved better outcomes than those who did not have the same entry. We know that a successful student experience starts with the right welcoming support and living arrangements, so we select and match our students and hosts with the utmost care.
We view our hosts as ambassadors for our country. Our selection process ensures that our hosts possess the commitment, motivation, and capability to extend the support that will ensure each student’s successful integration into Australian culture. Our hosts offer much more than welcoming accommodation; they offer a support system and authentic interest in welcoming a student to Australia as well as helping the older and more independent student find appropriate and safe long term accommodation if required.

How Our Homestays Work

The Australian Homestay Network (AHN) matches each student with a host family located near the student’s education provider. The host provides the student with a private bedroom and an agreed upon meal plan. They also assist them in learning the local customs and transportation systems, as well as generally helping the student become acquainted with the Australian lifestyle. Students are encouraged to share information about their home cultures and countries. Our hosts also enjoy the opportunity of a unique cultural experience.

Our concierge service ensures your student’s homestay experience is focused on success from start to finish. This is achieved through our unique operating systems, 24/7 support and attention to detail when addressing any student issues if they arise.

A New Standard For Homestays

Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable, and culturally enriching homestay experience. Our service offerings include a sophisticated host/student matching process, banking and payment services, a rigorous background check program for all hosts, a 24/7 critical incident service, airport transportation services, and online cultural and hosting training and testing—all of which is all facilitated through our HMS (Homestay Management System) technology. This system facilitates communications, applications, placements, and payments for all stakeholders.
