Spend a Weekend in a British Home

It's a weekend being housed by incredibly nice people who want to show off a new part of the world to you. It is like having a built-in tour guide.

It helped curb my homesickness and was a great break from the routine I have established for myself."

- Mary M. (London Intern, Summer 2017)

One of the biggest challenges students often face while studying abroad is finding opportunities to meet the locals. That is why we have teamed up with HOST UK, who will provide you with the opportunity to experience British hospitality, at very little cost to you!

HOST UK is a charity organisation that provides international students with the opportunity to spend a weekend inside a British home. We always get great feedback from the students that take part, so much in fact, that Arcadia will pay the application fee and up to £20 towards your travel to the homestay.

Previous students have travelled as far as Northern Ireland while others have opted to stay closer to London, enjoying a weekend of fish ‘n chips by the seaside.

If you would like to take part in HOST UK, all you have to do is sign up online and select Arcadia University as your host institution to ensure we cover that application fee for you!
