Description of accommodation

Students can choose between twin and single room accommodation. Those choosing twin room accommodation must be travelling with a friend. 

Each room will provide storage space for clothes, a chair and desk (if not in the bedroom, students will be able to use a designated area for studying), as well as good lighting, mirror, and waste paper bin. Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family and they will also offer students one clothes wash per week and anything extra is at the discretion of the host family. Drying and ironing facilities will be made available to the student.

Students will have access to communal rooms such as the lounge, dining area and kitchen although most students will not be able to use the cooking facilities and each host will advise the student on what they have access to in the kitchen

Booking a superior homestay enables a student to have their own bathroom which will either be en-suite to the bedroom or located outside the bedroom and these facilities will be for the sole use of the student during their stay.

Description of local area

Our homestays are in residential areas, just a short bus ride from the school and the city centre where students can engage in a variety of cultural events.

Many students choose to stay in host family accommodation as it gives them the opportunity to become a member of the family and generally learn about the British way of life and most of all, a daily opportunity to practise their English.

Oxford is well known for its history and academic excellence, most notably one of the world's leading universities.
