Select/purchase your Host Family Matching Service

This is a one-time service fee, required for all students at the very beginning of their homestay journey. This allows us to find a suitable host family near your school!

  • Choose the host family matching service that works best for you, based on your estimated arrival date.

We have 3 matching service options to choose from:

After the matching fee is paid, it will be time to fill out your student profile.


Complete your Student Profile

The purpose of your student profile is to provide our team with the information we need in order to find a high-quality host family match for you.

๐ŸšจFYI: Because this information is crucial for the host family matching process, we cannot begin finding for your host family until your student profile is complete.

Here are some examples of information you might share in your homestay profile:

  • Your allergies (allergic to dogs, certain foods, etc.)

  • Your interests/hobbies (reading, basketball, surfing, etc.)

  • Pictures of you (to show your host family before you move in)


The Host Family Matching process begins ๐Ÿ”

Now it's time for you to sit back and relax as we find a safe and welcoming host family for you near your school.

Depending on the matching service you selected, we will find a host family for you within 90, 30 or 14 days.

  • We will present your host family's profile to you (every host fills out a profile similar to yours).

    • You will see pictures of your new host family and learn a little more about them.

  • Once you approve, your new host family will be locked-in.


That's itโ€”time to prepare for your journey abroad!

Get ready for your academic adventure...your host family will be so excited to meet you. ๐Ÿ˜
