HOST UK Profile

HOST UK works with international students studying in the UK to give them a visit for a day or a weekend with a British family, thus promoting international understanding and friendship.

HOST UK has a network of 1800 host families all around the UK, who are supported by 40 volunteer Regional Organisers. Hosts give up their weekend for free and get a huge amount from the visits which often lead to long-term international friendships.

We work with more than 100 educational establishments and around 2,500 students each year from under-graduates to fellows to PHD candidates.

Institutions subscribe to HOST UK and we work with them to publicise the opportunity to the students. We get a very high satisfaction rating from the students who have been on a HOST visit. The students gain confidence with social skills and language and, recent research has shown, will often do better academically as a result.

We are always seeking to augment our network of HOST families and Regional Organisers. We are also able to offer voluntary positions at our office in Islington, both for the short and long term. Please see our website for current details
