Staying with an English family

As part of their time in England, each student spends a period of at least two weeks, sometimes more, living with a carefully chosen local family in homestay.

The purpose of homestay is to give students the opportunity to come into close daily contact with English speakers and their way of life and it is seen by many students as one of the most important aspects of their year in England. To make students feel welcome, we ask families to involve them in family activities or outings whenever possible.

Students consistently report on the kindness and friendliness shown by homestay families and many students and families remain in contact even after the homestay has finished and the students are back in college.

If you're interested in becoming a homestay family please contact Dee Conroy.
