Home-stay is a cultural exchange between a local individual or family (called a “Homestay Host”) and a visiting International Student who comes to live as a guest in their home while they are studying in Australia. The AHN Homestay experience is a standards based homestay program that helps the student understand the culture and customs of the region in which they are studying. Many of our students make life long friends with their host.
The Host provides the Student with all their basic needs, including their own room, food (if applicable) and space to study.
In return, the Student pays a weekly fee.
Over the period of their time together the Host assists the Student to become familiar with the local area and customs while staying in a relaxed and friendly household setting.
The Student is also encouraged to share with the Host, information about their home country and culture. This interaction is what makes Homestay ideal for someone looking for a unique cultural experience.
AHN Home-stay provides national standards for Home-stay, designed to improve the process for everyone involved while ensuring both Students and Hosts get the most out of their time together.
