Welcoming an international student to your home will allow them to experience maximum immersion by living as ‘locals’. Also, hosting a foreign student gives them the opportunity to understand and experience British culture.

“I thoroughly enjoy hosting through UK Guardians. The team is friendly, approachable, and understanding. The staff keep me updated on student arrivals and answer my calls when I have questions. My husband and I have hosted for 2 years and being a musical family, students have enjoyed playing the piano and guitar while they stay with us”
