Do you have a spare room? Want to earn extra money? Do you enjoy learning about other cultures and countries?

This is where you provide students with their own room, use of bathroom facilities and kitchen facilities for them to cook and prepare their own food.

Hosting Students under the age of 18

We are also looking for Homestay Hosts for our younger students who come throughout the year and during the summer.
