Our dedicated councillors guide our students to find them accommodation to complement their studies, whether this be homestay or a student halls of residence.
Choosing to live with a host family whilst studying has lots of benefits. Primarily, students are given the chance to practice their English with their host family in a comfortable environment. Consistency conversing in a native English environment aids fluency and language development.
Also, sometimes students who are far away from home can occasionally get homesick. A host family provides students with a caring environment to support students as they settle into their new environment.
What to expect from your host family?
When staying with a host family, typically students will be given a single room, but if they wish to share a room, this can be requested. Host families provide their students with breakfast and dinner throughout the week, and there will be a communal bathroom and laundry facilities to utilise.
2. Student Halls of Residence
Some students opt to stay in student halls of residence. This is a great experience to live with other students from across the world, and to develop language skills further.
