Student with hosts outside a home

Staying in a local home is a good idea because you can practise your English throughout the day. Your hosts will be caring and supportive while you are with them. 

We offer either half-board homestay accommodation, bed and breakfast or self-catering.

Our homestays are all different: families with children, older couples or single people. In line with the ethos of the school, we aim to place our students with Christian homestays.

You will have a single room (there are also some twin rooms for married couples). Sometimes there may be other students in the home from another country.

Please note that we can only arrange accommodation for you if you are studying on our General or Intensive English courses, not our Part-time courses.
