Host Family Accommodation
Host family accommodation
Our partner school can arrange host family accommodation or student house accommodation for you if you would like to stay with a local family. Most students who come to study in Bournemouth choose this option, because living with an English family is a great way to practise your spoken English outside the school, and a marvellous way to find out how British people live.
All of our host families are carefully selected, and regularly inspected by our partner school's experienced Accommodation Officer. It is normally possible to cater for your special needs, as long as we have enough information about your requirements at least four weeks before your course starts(we may need more time in the busy summer months).
You may choose between:
- Single host family acommodation.
- Executive family accommodation – with extra-special attention, larger bedrooms and en-suite facilities.
Whichever you choose, you will have a comfortable, clean room with a desk to study at. Accommodation is half-board during the week (bed, breakfast and evening meal) and full-board at weekends (bed, breakfast, lunch and evening meal).
Most of our families live along a convenient bus route, so that travelling to the school each day will not take too long and should not cost too much money. Above all, you can be sure that whichever of the school's families you stay with, you will be made very welcome.
Please note that neither we nor our partner school firmly books host family accommodation until we are informed that the student has obtained a visa and full fees have been paid.
Accommodation is provided subject to availability
There is a £10 per week supplement for all types of accommodation in the busy summer months (June, July and August - please ask for the exact dates).
There is a £30 per week supplement during the Christmas holiday. The school cannot always offer accommodation during the Christmas holiday.
Single rooms are available in either “Homestay Accommodation” or “Private Home Accommodation”:
Homestay Accommodation means that hosts treat the student as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. No more than three adult or four junior students will be accommodated in Homestay accommodation at any one time.
Private Home Accommodation means that more than three adult students may be accommodated in the home and there may be less direct contact with the host(s). Private home accommodation is not suitable for juniors.
Junior (ie. Under 18 years of age) and adult students will not be accommodated in the same families. In all cases, students are placed in host families as close to the school as possible.
Please contact us if you might like to stay in a hotel: there are a lot of hotels surrounding the school and we can help you to book the hotel of your choice, from budget hotels (approximately £35 per night) to 4-star hotels (approximately £110 per night).
