Host families

We are always keen to recruit new hosts for our students.

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 particularly interested in hearing from families interested in hosting students from the Middle East region - specifically Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
