Become a host family
InterStudies welcomes a large number of international students to the UK and Ireland every year. Our students come to experience daily life in the UK and Ireland, becoming members of their host families and local communities.
A caring home
At InterStudies our first priority is to provide a caring home for each of our students. Hosting a student is an amazing experience, and we are looking for families that are willing to open their homes and their hearts to a foreign student. Our host families provide our students with a unique opportunity to experience the local culture in the UK and Ireland, at the same time they also have a great opportunity to learn about another culture. Hosting a student is a cultural exchange - and a great way to bring the world into your home!
Here's what one of our host mums had to say, and we couldn't have put it better ourselves!
Lynn Evans: I have been a host mum since 2005 with InterStudies... It's had its ups and downs... They're teenagers!!! But the rewards are great… I love my host daughters as my own…do it...try it...it's worth it...Trust me...I'm a host mum!!!
An experience for a lifetime
Hosting a student is an experience for a lifetime, for both the student - and your family. Students and their families don't only have the opportunity to learn about each other's cultures and languages, hosting can also form the basis for friendships that last a lifetime. Many of our families keep in touch with their students for years to come, visiting each other again.
