Become a host family
We receive a large number of students every year, and each student needs a caring home.
To become a host family you need to be able to offer a homely environment and be willing to include the student as a member of your family. Our students are coming to Britain and Ireland to experience the local way of life, to study and to live as part of a family. Some students come for 3-4 months, while the majority stay for an academic year.
While we offer financial compensation to help cover yor expenses, we do expect you to invite your student to become a family member for the duration of his or her stay, and to include your student in family gatherings and outings. We expect you to be interested in sharing your culture with your student and to show him or her around your local area, including some sightseeing.
Our students are between 13 and 18 years old. They come from all walks of life and from a range of countries. We enroll our students in local schools and we have a network of InterStudies representatives who are available with guidance.
We have gathered some more information in the Hosting for InterStudies booklet. Many of your questions regarding hosting for us will be answered in this booklet.
