Homestay Accommodatio*

Some students prefer the ‘homestay solution’ because it enables them to interact more actively with the local culture and ensure total English language immersion. The homestay solution means that you will live in with meticulously selected host families in homes within 5 minutes walking distance from the school. Remember, the School is situated in a high quality neighbourhood!

All families (without exception) hosting our students have been personally known to us for years. The best proof of our students’ satisfaction with these families is the fact that they recommend them to their friends when these come to study here. All our host families are native English speakers. We know them so well that we can match students’ individual preferences with the most suitable family for them.

  • Accommodation is at students’ disposal from the Sunday before beginning of course until the Saturday morning following end of course.
