Groups Host Family Accommodation
Host family accommmodation is a fantastic solution for groups of students who come to stay with us. The students can stay with a friend, but some prefer to immerse themselves in the experience and British culture and be the only student of their nationality in the family.
Host families are carefully selected by the Globe Accommodation Officer and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying English in Exeter. These homes are often between 10 – 30 minutes away from the school by public transport. The families will offer a variety of meals to cater to international taste. If you have special requests or diet restrictions (because of religious or health reasons), please let us know in advance.
Our families follow the English UK Code of Practice in accordance with the British Council and British Authority recommendations. Families provide a comfortable heated bedroom and offer breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. They will do some light laundry on a weekly basis, if required. Families do not usually have have 2 students of the same mother tongue unless the students ask to share with a friend or family member.
We select families for the comfort of their homes, their kindness and the quality of their welcome. Many of our families are personally known to our staff. Families are within walking distance of approximately 30 minutes/2.80 kms and on a bus route. The host families work in close co-operation with the school in supervising the students and ensure that school rules and parents’ wishes are respected.
Our week runs from Sunday to Sunday so we prefer our students to arrive and depart on those days. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire for other arrival days.
