Become a Host Family

Do you have a spare bedroom available? Would you like to share your culture and experiences with others while learning about theirs? If so, why not register with us as a host family. Thousands of families already offer accommodation to international students throughout Britain.

They do it not just for the financial benefit, but because it broadens their experiences and is often the start of lifelong friendships. Our students are all international students and staying with a host family gives them a great opportunity to experience a new culture and improve their English language skills.

The experience can be rewarding for both students and hosts alike. As hosts, you can be assured that students are selected with great care and are expected to abide by your own customs and have reasonable expectations. We work with only the leading schools, mostly British Council accredited, so the students you are asked to accommodate will be of a certain calibre.  You will also receive a weekly fee for hosting an international student.

Benefits of Hosting

  • Guaranteed prompt weekly payment, regardless of the students or schools ability to pay
  • Guaranteed income and year round business
