At St Brelade’s College we have 40 years experience in managing homestays in Jersey. Each year, we place more than 1,500 international students in local homes around the island. Our British Council accreditation means that we provide clear guidelines on what’s required as a host and the year round support that we provide. In fact, we are the only accredited language school in the Channel Islands.
Adult and junior students of different nationalities attend English language courses at St Brelade’s College for one week to a few months and often choose homestay in order to experience British life and interact in English. For hosts, the experience offers insights into different cultures and customs and provides you with the opportunity to earn extra income.
Homestay is the provision of a comfortable home environment for these students and our hosts include individuals, couples, families, single parents and retired people. Our full programmes mean that you can work and host students at the same time.
By providing comfortable accommodation and an insight into British life, you give students of all ages the opportunity to practise their English further.
Earn extra income by hosting with St Brelade’s College over the short or long-term. By hosting up to four juniors at one time, you can earn £1,372 for 14 nights.
St Brelade’s College offers a wide range of support for hosts. We provide answers to your most common questions, along with advice on the hosting experience.
