Our standards are recognised and approved by the British Council. All of our families are professionally checked before being allowed onto our register, and all of the accommodation has to pass strict selection checks before we allow our students to stay there. Our hosts abide by the Cambridge Host Family Code of Conduct, which makes our service second to none.
