Host Family Accommodation
We pride ourselves on providing a truly British experience for international students and our Homestay Accommodation Programme is one of the reasons.
Living with a host family is one of the best ways to enjoy British culture and lifestyle.
You will have the opportunity to get involved in everyday life, from eating together to watching British television. You will travel to College by bus or train just like our local students do from nearby towns or villages.
A safe and comfortable home from home
Families are selected, inspected and monitored by our international team, and all family members have to pass a Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) check.
Host families welcome students into their homes, making them a part of the family and helping them feel at home in the UK. English is spoken in the home and is an excellent way for you to practice conversational English outside of College and to learn about British culture and daily life.
You will have your own bedroom with a desk, or table and chair, a wardrobe or hanging space, drawer space, a bedside table and shelves for books and personal belongings. Use of electricity, gas and water and a family bathroom.
The family may have a pet, which is very common in the UK. As part of the application process, we ask you to give us information about your preferences which will help us match you with the most suitable host family.
