You Can Trust Us with Your Students
The Australian Homestay Network (AHN) offers three programs, designed to cater for international students of all ages and durations of stay. Homestays are currently available in 11 cities and six states throughout Australia, and we are continually working to expand our network of quality, certified host families. If you have any questions or special requests, please contact one of our friendly staff members to find out how we can best assist you. Our three homestay programs are:
Homestays for over 18’s (students over the age of 18)
Students over the age of 18 enjoy slightly different services depending on their preferences. A student can choose from several meal plan options, have a homestay located conveniently to their education provider, and arrange a driver through our airport pickup service. Fees vary based on the configuration of choices.
Homestays for High School Students (students under the age of 18)
All our homestays focus on safety and support, but we place even greater emphasis on this for younger students. We have specially trained hosts who have been certified to care for high school students. High school homestays include airport pick-up, private bedrooms with study space, three meals a day and extra care/support from their host families as required.
Homestays for Tour Groups
We offer short-term study tour groups the same expertise and best practices of homestay accommodation as our longer term placements. International tour groups receive all the advantages of our homestays, from our emphasis on safety and support to the cultural benefits of living with an Australian family. We work with educational agents and tour organisers to adapt each homestay package to the type, size, and duration of the tour. We even have options for visitors who would like to stay with Australian families during their holidays.
Very happy we are all getting along famously. Joshua has really fitted well in with our family. Same birthday has my husband, he is a wonderful boy and we are going to really miss him. His parents should be very proud of him. Looking forward to more hosting. Joshua has developed a wonderful bond with our 5 year old Oliver.
