Every year, many of our students stay with carefully selected local Homestay hosts.  This is a vital part of the cultural exchange and the host plays a large role in offering the student a view of another country and lifestyle.

After making an application the Accommodation Officer will contact you to organise a visit to your home. When we visit you we will explain more about hosting students, what to expect from the school and students.

Our requirements

  • You are happy to have a student at 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
