Homestay Information

Sahara seeks to provide a homestay program which benefits both local families and Sahara students. The focus of the program will be to provide a safe, friendly and healthful environment for Sahara students.  The homestay experience will enhance their experience of living and studying in the UK and will provide a positive impression of the British family life.

Students are expected to respect host family rules and work with the family to communicate and solve problems.

Sahara recommends homestay accommodation for new students. Homestay families will welcome you into their home, help you adjust to Great Britain life and provide all your food and board. Living with a homestay family is also a very good way to improve your English.

Homestay living can also be a challenge. It is not always easy to live with a family from another country. Sahara Homestay Orientation Guide can help you settle in to your homestay family. You will received this guide in your Welcome Pack.
