International Students

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.

HOST promotes international friendship and understanding by arranging for international students at British universities to meet UK residents in their homes.

Interested in hosting?

HOST is always looking for friendly volunteers who would like to welcome one or two international students to their home for a day, weekend or Christmas visit. You do not need to live near a university.

Support us

HOST is an unusual charity, but like all voluntary organisations, we rely on support from people who appreciate the value of what we do. Please click read more below to find out more!
