More Homestay Experience
Australian Homestay Network (AHN) is the world’s most experienced international student homestay network company, and is affiliated with the American Homestay Network. Since 2008, our Group has successfully placed over 40,000 students in homestay environments. AHN incorporates decades of international experience in homestay operations management to help ensure that every homestay experience is successful.
A New Global Standard of Excellence
AHN is dedicated to setting a new global standard for international student homestay. We are raising the standards of homestay in Australia and globally through our proprietary processes of approving host families and matching students to the right hosts.
AHN is unique as we are a standards based homestay company. Our legacy comes from the recognition in 2006 that there were no appropriate governing standards for service, quality, and safety of homestay for international students in Australia. This concern led to the formation of the Australian Homestay Network. Our global mission is to deliver the highest quality homestay experience based on accountability, system integrity, transparency, personalised services, safety, insurance, and a 24/7 professional support line.
Following this, American Homestay Network was established in 2012 to adapt and introduce an American version of Australia’s standards, technology and best practices to the American market specifically for international students. Already over 2,000 student placements have been made with trained American hosts.
The array of services provided by AHN is unprecedented in the industry. Our service offerings include a sophisticated host/student matching process, banking and payment services, a rigorous proprietary background check program, a 24/7 critical-incident service, airport transportation services, and online cultural and hosting training and testing—all of which is facilitated through our HMS (Homestay Management System) technology. This system enhances communications, applications, placements, and payments for students, hosts, agents, and educators.
