Why host students?

Home / Hosting students / Why host students?

An eye-opening experience with financial benefits

Hosting junior or adult students is an experience that can be greatly enjoyable for a family or individual, adding a new dynamic within the home. St Brelade’s College students come from around the world with the majority coming from France, Germany, Spain, Italy & Switzerland. This offers inspiring insights into interesting cultures and new persepectives from their international guests.

Benefits of hosting with St Brelade’s College

  • Meet new people – Meet students from different cultures and make life-long friends from different parts of the world.
  • Cultures & customs – Gain real insights into different cultures, customs & languages, as well as supporting cross-cultural diversity in your home.
  • Extra income – Utilise spare rooms to earn extra income, whether just for a few weeks in the summer or more long term. Providing there is sufficient space, you can host up to four students at one time and earn up to £1,456 for 14 nights. If you host juniors exclusively with us for a minimum of 8 weeks from June to August we will give you an extra £100 at the end of the summer too.
  • Out of summer hosting – There is a possibility of hosting students at other times of year (depending on your location).
  • Manage work and hosting – By providing a full daily schedule of lessons and activities, as well as many evening and weekend options, we minimise the impact on households which can suit those who are working during office hours.
  • Support – We are accredited by the British Council therefore we have clear guidelines and provide 24 hour support to our hosts.
  • Facebook community – Once you have been accepted as a host, you can join other St Brelade’s College hosts on our Jersey Homestay facebook page. Our community of hosts share ideas on hosting, arrange lift shares and discuss hosting topics.
  • 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.
