How do we choose our host families?

All of our host families are carefully selected by our specialist staff and while each family is different, they share a genuine desire to welcome students into their homes and their lives.  The UK has a rich history and is very proud of its cultural diversity. Our homestay providers are a reflection of our society and come from different backgrounds, age groups and socio-economic groups. We do not discriminate and welcome all homestays that fit our basic criteria.

We do our best to match students with the right hosts so it is important to book early and to tell us about your requirements (e.g. dietary requirements, whether you smoke and whether you’d like to stay with a family with children or pets). 

"I was very happy with my host mother, she is a wonderful lady and we had a lot of conversations. She helped me to improve my English." - Hanna Kravchenko, Ukraine
