Each year our International provision has grown and we are now looking for new host families to join our community.

All JLC international students live in local accommodation with a host family, a service that was rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, the education watchdog, in 2019. Our host families are chosen very carefully by the International Support Officer, are police checked and fully trained before we allow any students to move in. We visit the home first to ensure that it is a suitable place for you to live, and is clean, warm, comfortable and safe. Most homes are within walking distance of the college, but some students use public transport or cycle to college. You will have your own bedroom at the homestay accommodation, and you can choose a variety of catering options.

Host Family Accommodation includes:

  • Breakfast and evening meals on weekdays, and all meals at weekends and holidays included – £140 per week.
  • Self-catering – £110 per week.
  • Lunch at JLC – ranges from around £3 – £3.50 per day.

Once we have selected a suitable host family for your requirements, we will send you some details to enable you to learn more about them before your arrival in the UK. Throughout your time staying with the host family, our International Support Officer is on hand to offer advice and support with any queries you may have.

Practise your English language skills.
