Barnes Guardianship whilst studying at York College in the UK

Since 1975 Barnes Educational Services has been placing students at exceptional UK colleges and schools, providing host family and a total care guardianship package.

Being a family business, we do not place high volumes of students, so we can provide a very comprehensive and personal service.

As former teachers we understand the support that is required to allow our students to excel whilst studying at this UK college.

  • We personally organise your stay at York College
  • We take full responsibility for your well-being
  • A visit prior to the study period is welcomed
  • Arrangement of an airport transfer on arrival
  • Advice regarding student insurance
  • Availability of the BARNES family at all time (we share our mobile numbers with you)
  • A ‘Total Study Care Package’ (more than just guardianship)
  • Our strength: selecting caring host families
  • Host family relationship prior to travelling
  • Host family accommodation with own bedroom and board
  • Orientation meeting at York College and BARNES on arrival
  • BARNES local representative support throughout the study period
  • Introduction to local activities outside of college to help build additional like-minded friends
