Hosts wanted! (Homestay accommodation)

We are keen to recruit new homestays to host our international adult and junior students in their homes. Hosts can take up to 4 students (total from any provider) at the same time - with 1-2 students at a time a common number - which could mean a substantial boost to your income! We pay up to £190 / week per student (16/17 year olds on adult courses 1/2 board), with year round 18yrs+ adults at £165/week 1/2 board. The range of payments per student type will be shared with you at recruitment stage.

Our busiest period will be mid June-early Sept 2022 - so good availablity during these months is very helpful - and we have year round placements to offer of course too.

Hosting an international student not only provides a wonderful opportunity for them to experience life in the UK, but also provides you with an income for your spare room and the chance to learn about new cultures. Our students come from all over the world to study English in Bristol - in 2019 we welcomed over 41 nationalities to IH Bristol! We are also always interested in hearing from families who would like to host students from Middle East regions - especially Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, the United Arab Emirates.
