Why should I become a homestay provider?

  • You can receive up to £7,500 a year tax-free per household through the government’s Rent a Room scheme!

  • You can enjoy an intercultural experience. Share the British culture with an international student and learn about their culture at the same time!
  • Become a part of the Celtic community of homestay providers across the Cardiff and Penarth area!

How to apply

If you would like to apply to be a homestay provider, you will need to complete our application form. 

Please note that we will follow up applications with a visit to your home to introduce ourselves and answer any questions that you may have about the homestay experience. We will also check that your home meets the standards for hosting an international student. 

The basics that you need to provide are: 

  • A private room 
  • A desk and chair in the room for study 
  • A safe and welcoming environment 

Please read our homestay guidelines before making an application. The guidelines contain lots of important information on what you can expect to gain from hosting: Homestay guidelines and Homestay guidelines for under 18’s. 

If you have any questions at all, please contact our Homestay Coordinator, Ruby Sidhu (+44 (0) 2920 344805 or email ruby@celticenglish.co.uk)
