There's no better way to practise your English and learn about Maltese culture than in a homestay. Our homestay families will give you the security and support you desire along with great Maltese food! This is perfect for you if you enjoy all the comforts and familiarities of home life.
You can choose between twin and single room accommodation. If you choose twin room accommodation, then you can expect to be placed with a student of a different nationality, but you can even choose to share with a friend.
Each homestay bedroom has storage space for clothes, a chair and desk (if not in the bedroom students will be able to use a designated area for studying) as well as good lighting, mirror, waste paper bin. Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family and one clothes wash per week. Anything extra is at the discretion of the host family.
With advanced notice we can help with any special requests that you may have e.g. non-smoking family, no pets, allergies, special dietary requirements etc.; however, please note that this may not always be possible.
Whilst staying with a host family, you will have access to communal rooms such as the lounge, dining area and kitchen although most students will not be able to use the cooking facilities. Bathrooms will be shared with the host family unless you choose a private bathroom.
