Every year, hundreds of our students stay with carefully selected local Homestay hosts. The experience for both can be enriching and memorable.
What is Homestay?
There is no requirement for you to be a 'family' in the conventional sense: single people, lone parents, flat-sharers, and other configurations are equally welcome to apply!
Students are matched to households with great care, taking into account factors such as young children, pets and lifestyles. They will be expected to abide by your own customs and reasonable rules in all areas from cleanliness to curfew times.
We have students to host all the year round, with the largest numbers arriving for the summer months and during holiday periods. Whether you are interested in hosting for a few months a year, or full-time, one student or more, for short stays or long (some of our students stay for a year or more) - do get in touch.
- You are prepared to welcome a student into your home
- You have a spare bedroom or bedrooms, suitable for both studying and sleeping
- English is the primary or only language spoken in the home
- You live within 40 minutes maximum by public transport from one of our schools - preference is given to families who live closer
