Becoming a short stay host family for foreign students attending boarding schools in the UK is a rewarding experience that not only enriches your life, but also has a profound impact on the lives of these students.
Opening your home to an international student studying in the UK can be a rewarding experience for your whole family. If you have a suitable spare bedroom and are happy to welcome one of our carefully-selected foreign students into your family, you open the doors to a cultural exchange that can bring joy and insight to everyone involved, as well as financial rewards.
At Oxford Guardians we make it our business to help overseas pupils and their parents with every aspect of life in British education. So, here’s our quick guide to British boarding school terms and phrases, to make your life as a boarder easy to understand right from the start.
At Oxford Guardians, our local Education Guardians provide a vital link between students, the school or college, and parents. We also arrange Homestays, giving students without local relatives a welcoming family and home environment when they are not at school.
