accommodation IN LONDON
We will not be offering on-site boarding in 2020. Roughly half of our international students live with relatives in London. The other portion live in private homestay accommodation in the local area.
This means that students will live with a local family, who need to hold a special license to host students. We find this to be excellent for the student, since they have more time speaking English, and often have children of similar age in the family they join. This helps with adjusting to life in the UK and provides them with opportunities outside of school to mix with different people and learn the culture of the UK.
We can recommend some homestay providers, but these are independent to Bales College and we do not participate in the choice or placement of accommodation. This should be discussed directly with the independent accommodation providers – your contract will be with the provider, not with Bales College.
The fees vary depending on location and style of accommodation, but are typically around £180-250 per week for 42 weeks per year, including two meals per day.
