Facilities offered

Most key facilities are included as part of your homestay accommodation, meaning you can move in without worrying.

  • A fully furnished bedroom including a bed, linen, desk, lamp, drawers and heating.
  • Two or three meals a day, seven days a week. During the week students will be encouraged to make their own lunch, which will typically include a sandwich, fruit and baked goods (something that doesn't require cooking).
  • Electricity (in moderation).
  • Internet access (in moderation).
  • Telephone access (for local phone calls only).
  • Access to a washing machine to do your own laundry.

You will also be responsible for the cost of personal expenses like bus or train fares, doctor's appointments, cosmetic items and any non-local phone calls made using the homestay family's telephone.
