The great majority of our adult students stay in homestay accommodation. You will have a single room and have breakfast and dinner with your homestay provider. If there are other students in the house, they will not speak the same language as you, so you have to speak English every day. This is the best way to immerse yourself in an English-speaking environment and learn about British culture.
Almost all our homestay providers are within walking distance of LTC, about 10-35 minutes’ walk. In very busy periods like the summer, we may use some homestay providers which are further away.
In busy periods, we may also place you with a homestay provider who take more than four students. This is called Private Home Accommodation. Please tell us if you do not wish to stay in Private Home Accommodation.
If you are age 18+, we can also offer self-catering student houses in July and August. Here, four or five students live together in a house. You would have a single room and share the kitchen and bathroom with your housemates.
Or you may prefer to find your accommodation yourself, perhaps in a hotel, guest house or holiday apartment. Some students who study here for a long time find an apartment after they arrive. LTC can give you help and advice if you wish to do this.
LTC Eastbourne has residential dormitory accommodation for young learners age 10-16. Most bedrooms have four, five or six students. Two large rooms can take up to 12.
If you are 13+, you can choose shared homestay, which gives you more independence. You will share their bedroom with one other student and will have breakfast and dinner with your homestay provider. This is an excellent way to immerse yourself in an English-speaking environment and learn about British culture.
If you are aged 17, we recommend homestay, which gives you more independence than residential accommodation.
