Select English can arrange for students to stay in homestay accommodation in Cambridge during their stay. Staying in homestay accommodation can be an excellent way to get to know the culture better as well as providing more opportunities to practise English.
All our homestay accommodation is carefully chosen by our Accommodation Officer, who pays regular visits to all those who host our students.
The Accommodation Officer is always available to talk to students and deal with any problems that may occur in a quick and efficient manner.
Please note: you should arrive at your homestay on the Sunday before your course starts, and depart on the Saturday after your course ends.
Homestay accommodation is provided in single rooms for all students on our year-round General English and IELTS courses. For students on Cambridge Juniors or English Plus, homestay accommodation is in twin rooms.
Cambridge homestay accommodation on our year-round courses is half-board. For students on Cambridge Juniors or English Plus, homestay accommodation is full-board. When you register for a course, please let us know if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements. Priority will be given to dietary requirements arising from religious or health reasons – it is not always possible to cater to requirements based on personal taste.
For students aged under 18 on our year-round courses, we are not responsible for providing lunches, unless they specifically request it as an additional part of their package. Please email us in advance if you would like to add lunches to your package.
Homestay hosts will do laundry for students once a week.
Many of our homestay hosts have internet. Please let us know well in advance if you are hoping to have a homestay with internet.
Private Home Accommodation
Select English also offer private home accommodation. These are homestays which host more than 4 students. Private homes provide meals and laundry service as detailed above, but may offer a reduced opportunity to interact with the hosts due to the number of guests.

I like Select English because it is really welcoming and the social staff and teachers are great. Heather took us out for dinner the other day which I really enjoyed.
