We understand the importance of knowing you will be in a safe, clean ad hospitable environment before you step on the plane.
The School will provide you with a selection of what they call “homestay”, which basically is a Family located within reasonable travel distance from the school that provides accommodation for international students.
The family selection complies with high standards as not every family is authorised to rent out a room. The school carries out regular inspections to make sure standards are met at all times.
Remember that living with a local family will certainly enrich your whole experience since you will be sharing dinner tables, discussions, etc.
It’s also important to stress that any complaints with regard to your accommodation will immediately be dealt with by your Group Leader or School. However, it’s also advisable to prepare yourself for a cultural, food and customs change. You may need a few days to get used to the British way of life.
You will get to know which family will be hosting you way before the date of departure. We also recommend you to write to them a couple of weeks before you leave to introduce yourself. It would be a good way of practising your written English!
