      Note about Homestay: It can sometimes be difficult for us to organise a homestay for an extended period (usually for more than about four to six weeks).

      • Our hosts take students not just as a commercial transaction but because they give a genuine welcome.
      • Our hosts may travel abroad or host friends in their home.  

      This means that they are not always available for long periods of time. If it is not possible for us to find one homestay for the duration of your stay, we will try to find two hosts to suit your needs.


      • There will be a summer supplement of £20 per week from the 3rd July to 27th August 2017.
      • If homestay is available, there will be a supplement of £20 per week from 18th - 31st December 2017.
      • Homestay accommodation is booked from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it ends (applicable only to full week courses). If you want to arrive earlier, or leave later, we will try to arrange this but we may have to offer you an alternative such as a hotel for the extra nights.
