Become a Homestay Host

Welcome the world home. 

Every year, thousands of students from across the world come to learn English, study for exams and prepare for university with Bell, and we are looking for people who can offer them a home away from home.

If you can offer a warm welcome and a room for one week or longer in Cambridge or London, you could become a perfect Bell homestay host.

Benefits of hosting

Hosting is a rewarding experience for both hosts and students.

As a host, you will:

  • Earn extra income from your home
  • Meet new people from around the world and experience different cultures
  • Introduce students to British life and culture
  • Enjoy friendly and professional support from the Bell accommodation team and the chance to attend our annual summer barbecue

Your students will be able to:

  • Practise English in a relaxed setting
  • Experience British life and culture
  • Become part of a British family

How much will I get paid?

This varies from £145 to £268 per week depending on the type of room you have available and the meal option you provide.
