Studying at Fareham College will provide a truly British experience and our Homestay Accommodation programme is a key cultural component.

Homestay Accommodation

Your academic success and welfare are our main priorities at Fareham and our homestay accommodation programme has been designed to support your personal, as well as your academic development. Homestay accommodation is available to all international students and has been proven to support English language and communication skills.

You will live with a local British family who will have been carefully selected by us and who will welcome you as a member of their family. Homestay will provide you with a real insight into life in the UK experiencing all British cultures and customs. You will be picked up from the airport and taken directly to your homestay, where from the outset you will be welcomed into their family and included in their daily activities.

Homestay accommodation provides:

  • A traditional, English-speaking home environment
  • A private furnished room
  • Meals
  • Internet access
  • Laundry
  • Travel pass, applicable

Homestay accommodation fees are in addition to tuition fees.

Travel & Transport

Getting to College is very straightforward and there are excellent transport links. We try to ensure that all host family homes are near to public transport routes. Fareham Train Station is just a 10 minute walk from the College, and we have a bus network that drops you off close by to the campus.

London, Southampton and Bournemouth all have international airports, and cross-Channel ferries run from Southampton, Poole and Portsmouth to Europe. Our International Student Recruitment Executives can offer specific help and advice through the summer months in advance of the start of term, and our dedicated Student Services team is on hand to help students with any travel queries on a daily basis whilst at College.
