We believe there is no better way to enhance your language learning experience than staying with one of our host families. Immerse yourself in British culture and get to learn a bit more about the language you are studying and the country you are living in.
All United Homestays have been thoroughlty inspected by the school to ensure they provide a safe, clean and comfortable environment to relax and study.
Families usually live in residential areas around Bournemouth but not in the town centre itself. Most of them are within 20 minutes walk from the town centre or on a main bus route with easy access to the town centre and all that Bournemouth has to offer. During the high season, you might be placed with a host family who lives a bit farther out.
Inclusive in the price of homestay accommodation is breakfast and dinner everyday, and also a packed lunch at the weekends. Bed linen, Wi-Fi and at least one laundry wash per week is also part of the accommodation package.
(Extra laundry washes may be charged by the homestay)
It all depends on what type of room you are looking for, what season of the year you are coming and how long you are going to be here with us. Have a look at our Homestay Accommodation fees for 2019.
If you're coming to United World this summer (June - August 2019) we have a new accommodation option for you, Bed and Breakfast! Stay at one of our United Homestays with breakfast included. This means more flexibility at a lower price.
* Only available for students aged 18 or over. Only breakfast included. No access to cooking facilities.
** The school also advertises private accommodation such as self-catering shared houses and student hotels on its school notice board. Students can enter into private arrangements with the landlords, however, these properties have not been inspected. It is the school’s recommendation that a minimum of 2 weeks’ homestay accommodation is arranged before entering private accommodation. There are many property letting agencies in Bournemouth if you are looking for a flat, flatshare or room and we also offer information and advice at reception.
