Students bring their own spending money for personal needs, souvenirs, entertainment, and other incidentals.
May I host more than one student at a time?
Yes, you may host up to four students. Some families like to host more than one student, as it gives the students a companion. It also gives your family the chance to learn more about another culture. Up to 3 students may share a room and up to 4 in your home, but all must have their own bed.
What if there is a problem with our student?
Our local accommodation coordinators are available 24 hours a day, seven days per week if you have any questions or concerns. Our students must comply with all programme rules and our staff will ensure they follow these while with your family.
