Accommodation Choice

A home away from home

The UK has been the destination of choice for international students for many years – culture, language, and a high quality educational system are just a few of the reasons for this. We offer a range of accommodation types so that the individual needs of each student can be met. 

Host family or halls-of-residence?

Students can choose whether they would like a homely, family setting or complete independence in a halls-of-residence. Whatever choice is made we have a network of experienced support staff on hand to help each student settle into their new home.

A warm welcome

Whether students choose to live with a host family or in halls, they’ll find themselves met with a warm welcome.
Our support team carefully matches students with families and works closely students, college staff and host families to ensure that each student feels happy, welcome and supported for the duration of their stay. Each student has a local support coordinator who is in touch with them regularly.

Safety and security

Student safety and security are our first priority. Host families are carefully screened by experienced staff, and are also subject to criminal records checks. Students in halls are supervised and have access to staff 24/7 in case they need assistance. All students have a local coordinator to assist with everyday issues as well as access to our emergency number which is manned by our team 24/7. Our student ambassador is also available if students want to talk to someone not so close to home.    learn more

Building long-lasting relationships

Students often form close relationships with their host families, room-mates (in halls), classmates and other international students. Studying in the UK is a great opportunity to build up an international network and build relationships and friendships that last a lifetime.   learn more
