We run a Hospitality Scheme each year, to connect international students with local people in Edinburgh.
The Hospitality Scheme for 2012 is now closed for student applications. We still welcome host applications.
Thank you to everyone who submitted an application.
In October we will hold an “icebreaker” reception for the matched hosts and students to meet one another.
More details will be available soon.
Even though applications are closed, you can still volunteer as a host at any time.
Your commitment doesn't have to be large; it can be as simple as meeting for coffee once or twice. However, some hosts enjoy spending more time with their students, and meet more regularly or provide hospitality over the Christmas vacation period.
We need as many volunteers as possible.If you would like to volunteer as a host please click the link below:
The hospitality scheme is a highly rewarding an enriching opportunity to learn more about different cultures and ways of life.
We are always expanding the scheme, as it is an extremely popular service for our students.
If you are interested in volunteering, or have any questions about the scheme, please contact:
