Practical Assistance

Assistance with homestays

Most students will require additional accommodation with a host family at some point during their stay.

We coordinate the placement of students into nearby host families for students who require it. All our families are inspected and vetted.

Assistance with transfers

We offer young-flyer drop-off and collection services when necessary through our own staff or partner taxi firms.

When we use taxis, our partner taxi firms employ only vetted and verified drivers.
