Guardianship - Complete pastoral and academic care for international students

A guardian is a person who has been chosen by a student’s parents to provide pastoral and academic care, ensuring the well-being and safety of the student whilst they are studying in the UK. A guardian acts on behalf of parents at such times as is reasonably required.

The UK Border Agency as well as UK boarding Schools require every student under the age of 16 to have an educational guardian resident in the UK. The requirement for a guardian above 16 is usually a school requirement. The guardian is responsible for you during term time and school holidays in the UK, acting on behalf of parents.

Although families sometimes have family or friends in the UK, they usually employ a professional guardianship company, such as Study Links, to act as guardian.

A professional guardianship company such as Study Links is generally a school’s preferred choice of guardian due to the expertise offered, 24/7 availability, experience, and trusted reliability.

Study Links are a highly experienced organisation. The student services team provide excellent support and regular communication with students; often in their first language.

Homestay – Improve your English and make life-long friends by staying with a homestay family

WHAT IS A HOMESTAY?
A homestay is a family that hosts international students whilst they are holidaying or studying in a different country. A homestay is sometimes known as a ‘host family’. The two terms have exactly the same meaning.For a student, the experience of homestay consists of a holiday or period of time spent abroad studying and living in the home of a local family.

BENEFITS OF LIVING IN A HOMESTAY
Though it can be challenging and difficult being away from home, having the support of a caring homestay ensures that you have the comforts of a family whilst you are in the UK. Another benefit of living with a homestay is that they really are the best English teacher that you could ever hope for. Whilst the English that you will learn at School suits your academic needs, the English that you learn from your homestay will be the conversational English that you will use for the rest of your life.

Your homestay will also teach you about British culture and cuisine. They will take you for day trips, show you their local area and introduce you to wonderfully British things such as fish and chips, English dialects and British music. After staying with your homestay on multiple occasions, it is likely that you will form a lifelong bond; many students regularly come back to the UK to visit their homestay or invite their homestay families to their home countries to meet their real families.

WHAT MAKES A STUDY LINKS HOMESTAY SPECIAL?
Study Links’ homestays are caring families who host students because they enjoy doing so. They have every student’s best interest at heart and ensure that the students in their care are well looked after.Study Links homestays go through a rigorous application process before they host students. This involves filling out a thorough application form, being visited by a member of the Study Links team and being DBS-checked (a police check). We also ask for your feedback about the homestay after every visit.
