Host families needed for college students

HOST families are needed to accommodate international students coming to Wiltshire College Salisbury later this month.

Eleven students, all aged over 18, are travelling from Qatar to Salisbury where they will study English in preparation for completing a foundation year and eventually a two-year HND programme.

Studying in Salisbury provides an exciting opportunity for international students and can also be an extremely rewarding experience for families to learn about a new culture.

Host families are paid £120 per week. International Officer Paul Browning said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local families to support young people from around the world who want to better themselves.”

If you live within a 15-mile radius of Salisbury city centre, have a spare room and could offer a friendly and welcoming environment, then becoming a host family could be the perfect opportunity.

Wiltshire College’s accommodation team will be on hand to offer full support.
