Host UK

Have you ever considering expanding your UK experience? Would you like to have a better understanding of Britain and the British way of life? HOST UK offers you this opportunity.

Since 1987, HOST UK have offered students studying at UK universities the opportunity to spend a day, weekend or Christmas holiday with a volunteer host family. This opportunity allows you to make the most of your UK study experience. You stay in the home of your Host family, and will cook and eat together, join in with daily life and see the local areas of interest where they live.

The University of Warwick participates in the national HOST scheme. Many Warwick students have enjoyed a HOST visit over the years. There is a charge for the application fee, and you will need to pay for your transportation to and from your HOST location. For Warwick students studying on a course longer than three months, the first HOST application is charged at £10.00, with subsequent applications at full price (usually £60.00, more if you are also bringing dependents or for a Christmas visit). Day visits are reduced to £6.00, with subsequent applications at full price (usually £36.00).

Students apply at and then are later asked to pay the fee online to continue with their application. For more information see
