Rooms are organised on a sharing (twin) basis. We can place Young Learners together in groups of friends, or mix with other nationalities if requested.

Our hosts are located throughout Brighton & Hove. We inspect all homestay and private family on application and then again every 24 months. For definitions of "homestay" and "private accommodation" please contact homestay@isebrighton.com.

Young Learner students aged 17 and under can be accommodated unaccompanied in a homestay for a maximum of 4 weeks, as per UK regulation. Students staying longer than 4 weeks will need to change to another homestay or can be accompanied by a parent / guardian.
