CIT has contracted with the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) to give international students the opportunity to be hosted by a specially trained AHN Homestay Host for their introduction to accommodation and living in Australia.
AHN is considered to be the leading Australian Homestay Manager and is committed to meeting the well-published Australian Homestay Standards. AHN has been chosen by the Institute to ensure the best welcoming experience possible for international students.
You can initially book an AHN hosted homestay placement for 2-4 weeks as part of your orientation to Australia. There is also an option to extend your original homestay placement after this period on the same or different service level.
AHN offers students a quality and secure homestay experience. All of our AHN Homestay families have undergone extensive training, police checks (as required), are personally interviewed and homes professionally inspected.
AHN provides Insurance to protect you and your belongings while in homestay, and a professional 24/7 helpline including interpreter services should you ever need assistance. Please visit www.homestaynetwork.org/ahn-insurance for detailed insurance information.
An AHN Homestay can provide you with wonderful experiences and memories that last a lifetime.
You will enjoy everyday activities with your AHN Homestay Host including:
AHN aims to find you the best available Homestay based on your preferences.
Our AHN Staff are experts in Homestay placements and we have a high success rate in first time placements.
Your placement fee and initial Homestay fees will need to be paid in advance. This enables us to continue with your Homestay application and ensures that we are able to provide you with an early confirmation. For details on AHN products and homestay fees in Australia please click here.
