Homestay

Living in our homestay accommodation is a great way to improve your English and get a taste of British culture. Our hosts are carefully chosen and checked to ensure that you are happy, safe and comfortable throughout your stay. All of our hosts are fluent English speakers and come from a range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

  • Practise your English with our friendly hosts
  • Experience British culture
  • Breakfast and evening meals included

Our hosts live in different parts of Manchester. They usually live in residential areas, between 20 and 50 minutes away from the College. Some of our hosts have young children, some are retired couples and some are single, working people. All of them enjoy hosting students and learning about different cultures.

Students have their own room and are treated as an additional member of the family. This means you may be expected to help with some household chores like washing dishes after a meal and keeping your room tidy. It also means that you get invaluable practice speaking English at home and an experience of real life in the UK.
