Become a Homestay Host

Become a Homestay Host


Thank you for having an interest in becoming a Homestay Host

for Japanese students coming to UK, with Ryugaku Link.

We organise international educational courses for students

going to Boarding Schools and Language Schools in the UK.

Most of our students are 11 to 18 years old (Years 7-13), and

we have adult students as well.

What is a homestay?

We place students to stay with you in your home whilst they are studying in the UK.


Why should I become a homestay host?

By becoming a homestay host you will:

● earn extra income

● meet people from Japan and share fascinating stories and experiences from your different cultures and backgrounds

● introduce students to British life and culture and help with their language learning

● enjoy a rewarding experience


What do I need to do and provide as a homestay host?

All we ask is that students:

● have their own bedroom, with bed linen provided

● have access to a shared bathroom, or own en-suite, with towels provided 

● rooms cleaned every week

● are provided with meals every day

● have access to wi-fi

● do students laundry, at least once per week

● involve the student with host family activities, such as cinema trips and meals out

● all adults living at homestay are DBS checked
