BRISBANE, Australia – 2 July 2020: The world’s best standards-based student homestay and accommodation providers have come together to form the Global Homestay Alliance (GHA).
The Alliance’s mission is to deliver the highest quality experience for students based on accountability, system integrity, transparency, personalised services, safety, insurance and 24/7 professional support.
GHA spokesperson, Julie Manche, said the Alliance shares a commitment to global industry standards and advocates for student wellbeing in all aspects of the study journey.
“More than two decades of combined industry experience has enabled the Global Homestay Alliance to provide solutions and services that respond to demand for safe, welcoming and affordable accommodation for international students,” Ms Manche said.
