Host a Bell student

Behind every homestay experience for a student, is a host – a real person who can have a huge impact on an international student, simply by providing a welcoming and supportive home.

Our homestay hosts share their home and make life for an international student easy, enjoyable and safe.

Every individual, couple or family has different reasons for hosting:

  • Earn additional weekly income that you can spend on something you love to do
  • Meet people from anywhere in the world, like Argentina, France, Italy, or Japan
  • Make someone’s experience unique by sharing your own local knowledge of British life, culture and history in the community
