Host Families

Homestays

Living in a homestay is quite different to staying on a residential campus. Students attend the college during the day but they spend their evenings, weekends and most mealtimes in the home of their host.

Living with a Host Family

On the day of arrival, students are introduced to their homestay provider. Students are placed in groups of two to four per host family. At the end of the day, students will spend their evenings with a host family in their homes, in order to experience family life in England:

Students will have their breakfast and dinner with the host family and are provided with a packed lunch for each day.

Students will either walk to the college or take public transport, often a short bus ride, and they use a travel card/bus pass provided upon arrival.

On the first day of the course the students are taken to the college, or shown the route to and from the centre and given instructions on how to get back home again. They receive a map, the bus/train route
(if appropriate), the telephone number of the hosts, and the Cultural One emergency numbers.

On the first day of the academic programme the students have ‘induction’ lessons, during which they will learn more about the roles of the college, the timetable, where to go, etc. Students are given a campus/college tour, and a tour of the local area, so they are familiar with where they can find everything.Students then either go to activities or to classes. There is a choice of daytime activities so those who like sport can play football, volleyball, rugby, cricket etc and arts & crafts or Drama workshops.

Packed lunches will be eaten in the college and followed by afternoon classes or activities. Students return home for dinner and on two evenings a week they will return to have evening activities which are designed to be fun, but require the full participation of the students.
