Staying with a host family is a great way to practise and improve your
English as well as make new friends and meet new people. You will be
treated as a member of the household, eating together and sharing
common living areas.
Most of our Homestay accommodation is provided on a room-sharing
(twin room) basis. Friends and families can share by request, and single
rooms and en suite rooms are also available on request.
Homestay may be on a half-board basis (two meals per day) or full-board
basis (three meals per day). If you have special dietary requirements,
we can normally cater for these. There may be an additional weekly
charge depending on the dietary requirement, please see our
Students will normally travel to and from their homesty accommodation
using public transport (local buses), unless the house is within
walking distance. Please note that bus passes are not included within
your course unless it is part of a package.
The following will be provided for all students:
- A clean tidy room with a desk or table (or a room providing same), adequate storage for clothes and a comfortable bed with a weekly change of bed linen.
- The host takes care of the student's light laundry once per week, or the student should have reasonable access to the washing machine.
- Facility to have a shower every day with adequate hot water and towels available.
- Sufficient light and heat.
All our homestay accommodation is organised by our own Accommodation
Team. Homestays are regularly inspected by our team and have specific
criteria that they must satisfy.
