Westbourne Academy Accommodation
Accommodation is an important part of the experience and involves living as a member of the home. Students are treated as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. It gives them the opportunity to practise their English and benefit from an English home atmosphere.
Some students prefer ‘Private Home Accommodation’. There may be less of a family environment as there can be more than 4 students in the home. Students will still experience eating together with the hosts and sharing the common living areas.
Living with local people is the best way to get extra language practice and it also helps you to understand English culture and customs. The safety and security of all our students is a priority. In the case of problems, there are several full-time welfare officers available to give advice and help. The school also operates a 24-hour emergency telephone service for students.
- All homestays/Private Home Accommodation are carefully selected by the Academy’s accommodation department
- All homestays/Private Home Accommodation are regularly inspected by our Head of Accommodation
- Only nationals of an EU country will have access to free medical treatment. We recommend all of our students to make sure they have medical insurance before they depart for the UK. We recommend all students register with their homestay provider’s doctor. For more information on medical care for students please click here
