Accommodation for International students
What does homestay include?
Students will have their own private bedroom with storage, study space and WIFI plus a key to the house. Breakfast and evening meals will also be provided each day. Students will need to abide by college attendance and curfew rules.
Our homestay families have been carefully selected, vetted and monitored by our international team and all family members over 18 have successfully completed a Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) check. Many of our hosts are very experienced and have enjoyed sharing their homes with students from all over the world.
The host family could be a couple or an individual. Some have children and some have pets. Each host has a profile which will include details of their profession, family, interests as well as the location.
Many of our hosts are very experienced and have enjoyed sharing their homes with students from all over the world, often keeping in touch with each other for many years. Host families provide a vital link between you, the college and your family at home and will assist you in gaining your independence and social skills needed for life at college and university in the UK.
After settling in, you and your host family will go through a Homestay Agreement Form, stating the roles and responsibilities of the family, yourself and the College which will be signed by all parties. These are important for everyone as you settle into to your new environment.
The international team are always available to help you with any issue that it is bothering you, whether it is about homestay, studies, illness or general day to day matters. Your safety, academic success and happiness is our priority.
