Homestay companies place students with a host family. Host families are live in landlords who offer the opportunity to live as part of their family. This can be a very popular option particularly with students who are new to London and its culture and/or who may be looking to improve their English language skills.
This type of accommodation can be tailored to the specific needs of the individual and has flexible lengths of stay. Some companies also do not require a guarantor to secure the accommodation.
