Our Accommodation Officer will keep in close contact with you regarding availability of students, and we’ll do our best to accommodate any special requests.
Hosting students can be a new experience to many families and our Accommodation Officers are always ready to support you.
Universities often run exchange programmes and will need accommodation for students for a term or a semester.
If you want to start hosting foreign students then your first port of call is a local language school.
Once you have been accepted, you may choose when you want to work.
You are free to accept or turn down each student you are offered, for any reason you like.
We ask that our families hosting students with us provide each student with: EF staff will be with you every step of the way when hosting students: helping you select the host student that best fits your family; guiding you through your student’s transition to their new country; introducing you to other families in your community; and organizing optional fun excursions.
Then there are university students and lecturers who can be in the country for up to six months at a time.Most towns and cities across the UK have lots of language schools.We searched online for local foreign language schools and starting to make contact.We also asked people we knew had hosted students for names and recommendations of schools.It was then a matter of sitting back and waiting for them to let us know when a student needed to use the room.This is a contributor post brought to you by John who is a busy dad of two young children who works full time in Bournemouth.
