Description of Accommodation
When choosing to stay with a homestay, students have the unique opportunity to share and experience the day to day life of an English-speaking Maltese family together with all the diversity of the local culture.
Choose between twin and single room accommodation and be placed with a student of a different nationality or choose to share with a friend.
Each room will provide the student with 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, 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.
Whilst staying in a host family 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 family will advise the student on what a student has access to in the kitchen. Bathrooms will be shared with the host family.
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 however these facilities will be for the sole use of the student during their stay.
