About Me

In 2012 she progressed to University College London (UCL) to study Architecture.


JLC international students live with a host family in homestay accommodation. The college choose host families very carefully and all are police checked and inspected by the college before allowing a student to move in.


Most homes are within walking distance of college but some students use public transport or cycle to college. Students share breakfast and evening meals with their family on weekdays and all meals at weekends and holidays. Some host families provide self catering accommodation.


Normally the student pays the host familiy directly for their accommodation. The cost is £115 per week (£85 self-catering).


Information for the parents of international students can be found in the Parent Zone.

Ofsted: "Students live in host family homes that are safe and secure..."

UK government inspectors have concluded that safety and welfare provision for international students studying at John Leggott College is good with outstanding features in a report published on 1 March 2012. The Ofsted inspection carried out in January 2012 examined how the College promotes and safeguards the welfare of international students under 18 years old, for whom the College arranges accommodation with host families. A social care inspection is carried out every three years at the College and scrutinises all aspects of student life including health, well-being, involvement and inclusion, support and guidance.
