Friends International Dorset are here to help you enjoy your time in Bournemouth. Studying in another country can be great fun and very rewarding. But it can also sometimes bring challenges as you get to know new people, a new language and a new culture. We want to help you to feel at home while you are here in the UK. Throughout the term there are lots of opportunities for you to meet local people and other students. You will always find a warm welcome at any of the activities promoted by Friends International! Whether you are with us for a few weeks or several years, we hope you have a great time in Bournemouth! And we are looking forward to meeting you soon!

Would you like to be invited into the home of one of our host families?

Friends International's hospitality scheme has been running for more than 20 years and for many international students, this has been the highlight of their stay in the UK.

Simply register your details and we will arrange for one of our hosts to contact you. You will then be able to arrange a suitable time with your host to go to their home for a meal and a chance to relax and socialise. If you want to bring up to 2 friends with you, just tell us their names when you register, and ask them to register too.

If you have any questions about this scheme, please don't hesitate to contact us.
