Job Description - EXPIRED

HOST UK is a small national charity, set up by the British Council and Foreign and Commonwealth Office in 1987, which aims to promote international friendship and understanding by welcoming international students as guests in British homes. HOST’s volunteer hosts offer an occasional invitation for an adult international student, who is currently studying in a UK University, to spend a short time in their home. Visits last just a weekend (Friday to Sunday) or even a day (no overnight stay).

Hosting is an excellent way to help international students, many of whom are isolated on their university campuses, and few who see much of their own families during the holidays, the chance to experience British home-life and culture in a homely setting. It is also an exciting opportunity for the hosts to learn about cultures from across the world.

Those interested can find more information on the HOST website, www.hostuk.org, by emailing info@hostuk.org, or by calling 020 7739 6292.
