What is homestay?
Homestay is a tailored accommodation service run by the Centre for Open Learning (COL), offering placements with a local Edinburgh family on a self-catered or catered basis.
The service offers many unique benefits, from an immersive cultural experience within a safe and supportive environment, to the ability to practice and enhance English language skills in an informal home setting.
It is primarily designed for international students who are studying bespoke courses at COL.
