Private accommodation

Homestay scheme

For students from overseas, our Homestay scheme offers an opportunity to enjoy the enriching and rewarding experience of living with a local homestay provider. Each year, we welcome students from all over the world. They come from as far afield as China, the USA, India, Nepal, Pakistan or South Africa as well as from our European neighbours such as Poland, Czech Republic, Spain, Germany and France.

As part of their experience here in Scotland, students enjoy staying with local homestay provider and getting a true insight into the local culture and our way of living. Many of our students have remained in contact with their homestay provider long after returning to their home country. Homestay accommodation is available on a room-only or half-board (bed, breakfast and evening meal) basis. If you require further information, read about the Homestay scheme or contact
