Why host?

Do you have a spare bedroom?
Do you live in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex or Cambridgeshire?
Why not consider hosting an international student?

Some of the  benefits of being a host family are:

  • An opportunity to share your family life and learn about different cultures and traditions
  • Enabling a student to improve their knowledge of the English language, often gaining excellent results at school
  • A rewarding experience as you help a student achieve when in the UK
  • Regular weekly payments whilst the student is in your home

We are looking for hosts who can provide a safe and secure environment and we welcome applications from people of different ages, backgrounds and family situations


Student welfare is our priority and at Alpha Guardians we provide comprehensive support to all our host families, students and schools from our experienced team. We also provide an Emergency Service 24/7 for anything which occurs outside of normal hours.

No question or query is too small.
