Host Families – What Happens Next

Once we receive your application we will:

  • Arrange to visit you in your home, explain in details the requirements of hosting a student, answer any questions you may have and have a look at the student’s bedroom
  • Take up DBS checks on all members of the household over the age of 16, along with two references
  • If you are approved as a Host Family, you will then be invited for training
  • When a suitable student is found for you, we will provide you with their information and contact details so you can get to know them before they arrive in the UK
  • We will send you information regarding the students arrival and where to collect them
