Homestay Oxford recently had the pleasure of hosting 46 students from China who stayed for 13 nights. The students were aged 18 to 22, male and female came from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China which is in Chengdu in Sechuan Province. The students stayed for 13 nights enjoying bed and breakfast accommodation with Homestay families.

The hosts were located in Botley, Wood Farm, Headington, Greater Leys and were picked up by taxi each morning to take them on their daily itinerary. The itinerary included lectures, visits to Stratford, Winchester, London, and of course Oxford and its Colleges.

Hello Guy, Our students have filled out an evaluation sheet and the general opinion about the host families in Oxford was very positive (score 8). I think all went really smoothly. We were worried at first about the bus trips, but this turned out very well indeed. We saved a lot of time and besides, Carfax Tower is an excellent meeting point. So no problem if this would be the arrangement another time. I hope we meet another time and thank you again for your help With kindest regardsGriffith (Chinese Homestay student February 2017)
