Live with  A Local Family 

Home stay is for students who want to live with a host family in their home. It is recommended for students under 18, and it is a requirement for students under 16. Please note that we prioritise students under 18 years old for home stay accommodation. If you choose home stay accommodation, you will live as a member of the household. You will usually have a single room, and share the rest of the facilities. Accommodation is arranged by the College for a minimum of two weeks. If you want to stay for longer than this period, you should arrange this with the host or home stay family. Payment is made weekly in advance directly to your host or family.

There are many benefits to being in home stay:

  • Breakfast and evening meals are provided for you.
  • All your bills are paid and laundry is done for you.
  • There is no deposit to pay.
  • You have more flexibility – you are only committed to stay for two weeks.
  • For international students, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn English quickly.
