Our homestay hosts are all carefully chosen by our Accommodation Manager, but our superior rooms offer a higher standard of accommodation. Your room will usually be larger and decorated to a higher standard. There will be a separate bathroom for you to use, although in some cases you may be asked to share this with another student. You may also be offered an extra course with your evening meal.
Superior homestay accommodation is popular with students who want to have more privacy. This accommodation is located in the same areas as our regular homestays.
You will have a single bedroom unless you have chosen to share with a friend or relative, and your room will contain a bed, desk, chair and storage space for your clothes and belongings. There may be other students staying with the same homestay host, but they will not speak the same language as you.
When you apply for your homestay accommodation, we will place you with the best host for your needs (for example, if you have allergies or special dietary requirements). If you need a special diet you must tell us when you book.

Your host will provide breakfast and an evening meal every day.
This will give you the opportunity to practise your English with your hosts every evening, and many students taking this option enjoy being part of a “family” while they are away from home.

This option includes breakfast every day, plus an evening meal 3 times per week – you will agree with your host which evenings you would like them to prepare your evening meals.
This option allows more time with your host than if you book bed & breakfast, but is popular with students who wish eat at the many of excellent cafes and restaurants in the local area or in central London.
Your breakfast will be provided every day, but no other meals are included. You may have less opportunity to talk with your hosts as you are not sharing evening meals with them.
This option is suitable for more independent students who prefer to cook their own food – you will be able to prepare a meal at times agreed with the hosts, and store your own food in their kitchen.
