What does a host family provide?
If you choose to become a host family you will make it possible for a student to study and experience life in the UK. We ask that you are able to provide:
A comfortable environment including a bed, study area and space to store their personal belongings
Three meals a day
Warmth and support to assist your student through their exchange
A home environment where they are welcomed as a member of the family
**MyEducation (UK) is able to offer a reimbursement to families to help with the additional costs of hosting.**
If you choose to become a host family with MyEducation (UK) we will be there to support you and your student 24 hours a day. You will have access to a local representative as well as the staff at our head office. We are here to guide and support you all to ensure that your time together is positive and memorable for everyone involved.
