AHN was founded in 2007 as an Australian standards-based homestay provider for international students and developed the original and ‘appropriate’ national standards for homestay. The approach was based on accountability, system integrity, transparency, personalised services, safety, insurance, and a 24 / 7 professional support line. In September 2008, AHN placed its first international student into homestay.
Over time, AHN has become Australia’s largest and most recognised homestay organisation for international students, receiving acknowledgement and commendation for our standards from both Industry and Government.
AHN is the Country Manager of international student homestay franchisees in Australia, which cover each state and territory.
Following the success of AHN in Australia, the American Homestay Network (AHN USA) was launched in 2012, with our first office in Seattle Washington. AHNUSA was established to adapt and introduce an American version of Australia’s standards, technology and best practices to the American market specifically for international students.
AHN USA is the Country Manager of all Licensees in the USA. MSI receives royalties from AHN USA in exchange for technology and IP support.
