Host Family Accommodation
Most of the Globe students choose to stay with a British host family during their time with us. It is a fantastic way to meet new people, learn about the local way of life, explore the traditions, as well as practice your English. We offer host family accommodation to both junior and adult students.
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 usually between 15 – 30 minutes away from the school by foot. The families will offer a variety of meals to cater to international taste. If you have any allergies, perferences or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance as we will use this information when selecting your host family.
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 never have 2 students of the same mother tongue unless the students ask to share with a friend.
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 kilometres and on a bus route. The host families work in close co-operation with the school in supervising the younger 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 email@example.com to enquire for other arrival days.
