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 & Russia. This offers inspiring insights into interesting cultures and new persepectives from their international guests.
