Host UK – welcoming international students

Return to list of services

Information on this page was last updated on 01/10/2017

Make the world a little friendlier! Spend a day or a weekend with an adult international student, learning about their culture, showing them your local area and inviting them to experience your own home life.
Volunteer hosts invite students to visit for a day so the student can experience ‘real’ Britain, away from university and heavy tourism, and so the host can meet new people and learn about diverse cultures from around the world.

Choose how often you host, how many people you invite (individuals, pairs or families) and if you would like to meet someone from a specific country. Students and hosts will be matched on interests and availability by a Regional Organiser (RO) who will also help you sign up.

There are no specific expectations from a host visit, other than the student should be made to feel part of your family for the short time. Hosts can show their local area, visit friends, attend local events, or just spend time chatting. This is not a tourism opportunity for the student and hosts are not expected to act as ‘tour-guides’.
Age requirement: Over 18
