Homestay

Homestay accommodation is compulsory for students aged under 18. Homestay involves living in a British home as a member of the household. Each student will have their own bedroom but will share common living areas and bathroom facilities with other members of the household.

The majority of the Homestay homes are located approximately 30 minutes by bus or tram from the College. Students should expect to have to walk a short distance to the bus/tram stop and travel by bus or tram to the College. Clear instructions on how to travel to and from College will be provided.

A DBS (criminal records check) is always completed and for all members of the Homestay household aged 18 or over, before we will place students in that household. We inspect all households annually to ensure the facilities they provide comply with College guidelines. We also take the student’s preferences into account, and take care in placing students in suitable households – for example we would not usually place a female student in a household where there was a teenage boy.

Living in Homestay really is a great opportunity to experience British life and culture, as well helping students to improve their English!

Homestay fees: Half board homestay accommodation costs 160 GBP per week
