Services to assist effective transition to Australia and general student welfare.
Our school understands the importance of services to assist effective transition to Australia and general student welfare, including CRICOS International Students who may be living in Australia unaccompanied by family. ISWA recommends the following accredited service providers:
Australian Homestay Network
Australian Homestay Network (AHN) is Australia’s largest and leading homestay provider, delivering the highest quality homestay accommodation for CRICOS International Students. Read more here: Accommodation Options.
ISA Guardian and Welfare Services
CRICOS International Students can liaise with the independent organisations of ISA Guardian and Welfare Services. ISA specialises in the provision of security, assistance, advice, and advocacy to international students during their study time in Australia. They can act as a liaison for student welfare between AHN, ISWA, and the general community. For additional information click here.
