Homestay

We offer Homestay accommodation with fully police checked families. Homestay accommodation is a popular choice if you are experiencing the UK for the first time. We will only place you with families who regard you as a member of their household and who will help you integrate into life in the UK.

You will have your own private bedroom with ample storage and study space. You will also have free access to the WiFi within the house. Your host family will provide you with breakfast and a home cooked dinner in the evening. But more than that, they will help you settle in to college life, advise you on your studies and support you at all times.

If you are new to the UK, your Homestay family will give you a truly unique experience of British culture and family life. Living with a UK family will not only provide you with security and support but will also help you to learn a new culture and improve your English language skills.

We take great care in matching you to the right family and all families have Criminal Record Checks carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. Please read our Statement of Home Stay Accommodation Aims and Values document

For further information please contact Maria Smith, Accommodation Co-ordinator, on accommodation@richuish.ac.uk.

It’s been an amazing experience to live with and be part of an English family, sharing experiences of their culture. I felt very welcome from the first day I arrived and we did lots of enjoyable things together like playing board games on Sunday, watching films at night, shopping, eating out, walking or going to the beach. I have a cosy bedroom and the rest of the house is really English. I enjoyed every single moment in these two years and the food is absolutely delicious.

Ariel is like one of the family now. She is like a big sister. She’s the best friend in the world and she has taught me so much. She does so much with me and always enjoys just sitting down on the sofa whilst relaxing. She constantly remains a good friend.
