Host Family

Interested in Hosting Students?

Why become a host family?

Welcoming a student from a different country and culture into your home is an unforgettable and exciting experience. By sharing your home and offering guidance, your family becomes an important part of the international student’s life. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

Is there an out of pocket expense for families?

While hosting an international student, a fixed monthly stipend will be provided to the homestay to cover expenses. 

This sounds awesome! What’s the next step?
