Welcome to Student-Host.com….

Big group of young jumping people.

When we were thinking of becoming a host family a few years ago, we were relying on information, mainly from the language schools and from the experiences of family and friends to help us decide.

We realised that there was a short fall of information for host families who were considering taking on students in their homes and for already active host families who may need help, support and ideas!

There was also a lack of information for students thinking of studying English in the UK and what we thought was the need for a basic “SURVIVAL GUIDE” for all the people involved.

This site is designed to offer a comprehensive guide of all areas of student hosting and studying.


It has been written by experienced host families and the aim is to encourage fellow hostees and students alike to put forward their thoughts, issues, hints and tips for all to use.
