Homestay means living with a British family. We recommend that our students stay with British host families. It helps students both in their social interaction in English Language and with exploring the British culture. Homestay makes you feel at home in a different country.

The academy uses a third party homestay provider who aims to give you a happy and enjoyable time.

Travel times from a host to the academy are usually between 10 minutes and 30 minutes by bus. Weekly bus passes can be bought for approximately £15.
