You can experience the way of life in the UK as the guest of one of our friendly approved hosts who live in many different parts of Britain.Read More...
HOST would love to make the introductions!
We are always looking for more volunteer hosts all over the country. Helping a student to feel welcome is not just ‘a kind thing to do’. It is fun to share our way of life for a day or two, see ourselves with other eyes, explain the peculiarities of the English language, and the oddness of some of our customs. We can also have our eyes opened and our interest in other countries fuelled by getting to know someone from another part of the world.
At the moment we have many students eager to experience Christmas in someone’s home. For some, the alternative is to spend Christmas on an almost deserted university campus. So if you could squeeze one more into your family party; or if sharing Christmas would make it more special for you – please get in touch with HOST as soon as possible and we will tell you more. Thank you!
HOST is here for you, to help you feel more ‘at home’ in this country. Our friendly hosts are waiting to welcome you to their homes for a short visit. Spending a day or a weekend with a host family is quite different from being a tourist. You will learn a lot by taking part in our way of life, and your hosts will be interested in you, so you will not feel so far from home.
We are still accepting applications for HOST visits at Christmas – this is a wonderful opportunity to share in our most important annual festival. But please apply soon!
We look forward to welcoming you.
HOST promotes international friendship and understanding by arranging for international students at British universities to meet UK residents in their homes.
