Hosting adult students

Open your door to the world and make a friendship that lasts a lifetime

Hosting adult students can be an insightful experience, as you and your family will be introduced to new cultures and languages and can share experiences from around the world. Many hosts find that educating students about Jersey and the community is a great way to connect as a family too.

Key facts about hosting adult students

  • Age ranges: Our adult programme is for students between 18-60+ years old.
  • Times of year for hosting: Adult students study at St Brelade’s College from April to October.
  • Course duration: The length of stay for adult students varies from one week to a few months at a time. Long-term students generally attend examination courses.
  • Board: You are required to provide a comfortable single room for students or double room for couples, along with continental breakfast & dinner. Adult students are required to buy their own lunches.
  • Transfers: Students usually arrive and depart at the weekend and you need to pick them up and drop them off from the harbour or airport.
  • Study & activity programmes: During the week, students can attend different study & social programmes with all courses starting at 9:00. Depending on the time of year, we offer excursions on different afternoons (students may return to their homestay on free afternoons). Throughout the year, we arrange a weekly pub evening, as well as a dinner at a local restaurant.
  • Transport: The school provides public bus passes for students throughout the year. We also provide transport for the weekly student dinner.
  • Safeguarding – You should welcome students as members of your family and show concern for their welfare, safety and security during their stay in line with our school safeguarding policy.
  • Support: Advice & guidance is available from St Brelade’s College throughout weekday working hours and an out of hours emergency phone support line is also provided.
  • Recommend a friend scheme: We’ll pay you an extra £75 ‘thank you’ bonus per new host recommended (if they host for a minimum of four weeks during the summer). Bonuses are paid annually at the end of the August.
