Homestay and Accommodation Arrangement
Homestay is the best way to experience the Australian way of life. Living with an Australian family will help you become immersed in the culture, enjoy the companionship of local people, make new friends, settle into the environment and routines easily, and use your English skills in everyday situations.
Acknowledge Education (AE) uses homestay services provided by the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) from 1st February 2024. The Australian Homestay Network (AHN) delivers global standards for homestay accommodation across Australia. AHN staff, its hosts and affiliates are ambassadors of Australia, interacting with students and visitors from around the world. They embrace their core values, standards, procedures and technologies, which are recognised by the Australian Government. The Australian Homestay Network (AHN) helped develop Australian Homestay Standards and also became the first hosted accommodation provider to be endorsed by the National English Language Teaching Accreditation Scheme (NEAS) in the category of Quality Products and Services (Area O – Homestay Service Providers).
We have a Homestay/Welfare Support Officer based at Exhibition Street Campus in Melbourne and are responsible for approving Parent Nominated Accommodation for students under 18. We will liaise with AHN when necessary.
AE continues to provide the Student Welfare Support Service – “Your Care Team” and will still be responsible for issuing the CAAW form.
Airport pick up service is also provided by the AHN.
