Other information

  • Most houses in the UK have only one bathroom, so it is necessary for students to fit in with the family’s daily routine. For example, some homestays may ask you to avoid using the bathroom at times when people are preparing to go to work.
  • Students will be provided with towels but it may be necessary for you to provide your own soap, shampoo, toothpaste etc.
  • As a minimum, details of meals include: Breakfast – cereal, toast, and tea / coffee / juice.
  • Some homestays may allow students to prepare their own food in the kitchen, but students should always check first.
  • Homestays do not have to provide snacks between meals.
  • If you do not eat at the same time as the homestay, you might have to prepare food yourself.
