Come and learn English with us

Studying in London can be an unforgettable experience. Finding the right accommodation is important, but it can be tricky with so many different options out there. Our experienced staff can assist you with each step of the booking process and help you find the right place for your budget and requirements.

We work with Homestay Agencies that inspect and check the quality of the accommodation to ensure it is a good standard for your comfort and safety.

There are busy seasons and quiet seasons, so try to book your accommodation as soon as possible to ensure that you have a place to stay during your course at Insight Study.

Self-catering, with bedding supplied: from £200 per week (low season)

If you are looking for more independence during your stay in London, private studio accommodation is available. We work with privately owned and managed providers such as: LHA (Canary Wharf), NIDO (Liverpool street or Kings Cross) and CLVUK (McMillan Student Village). All residences have 24-hour security and great facilities, including internet, en-suite bathrooms and private kitchens.

This is a great option if you want more independence during your stay in London.

Self-catering accommodation is a very popular option, so book early to avoid disappointment.


Most rooms have:

  • WiFi or cable internet (additional costs apply – approximately £10 per week)
  • en-suite bathroom
  • kitchenette
  • a communal area for socialising

Student housing is located in the heart of central London and convenient for sightseeing and studying at Insight Study.

Single Room from £500 per month (room in shared student house)

Living with other students in a shared house can be a great way to meet new people and make new friends. It can also give you a chance to continue practicing your English outside of school.

You will have your own room but share the kitchen and bathroom facilities. You will usually be in a house with between 6 to 9 other people.

All accommodation expenses (bills) are included in the price we quote so there are no extra bills to pay.

Studio Flat from £850 per month (2 months deposit will be required as security)

Are you staying in London over 6 months or long-term? Maybe you may need your own apartment or house.

We have properties and rooms available in South East London and the surrounding areas. Our experienced staff will work with you to find accommodation in an area suitable for you. Alternatively, they can advise you on locations and estate agencies in the local area.

We use homestay agencies to ensure that all of our standards are met.

The Homestay agencies we use are inspected by and registered with the British Council. We still ensure that our policies on welfare and safety are met by these agencies.

The families can cater for most meal plans and requirements. Tell us in advance of anything you need so we will make sure that your stay is pleasant and comfortable.

The homestay agency will ensure that any accommodation provided is clean, safe, comfortable and that the hosts are friendly and welcoming.

During the students’ stay, the host family treats the students as full members of their household.

Meal times are spent together with the family. This is usually a good time for students to use their new vocabulary.

We do not allow more than four students to be placed in the same homestay accommodation at any one time, this would usually be in two twin rooms. We also avoid mixing speakers of the same language together – unless they are travelling as part of a group and have requested to be together.

We try to make sure that the homestay accommodation is no more than 4.5 miles away from the school or one bus/train journey. Ideally this will be less than 40 minutes travel time to the school.

(**Twin rooms are only available for students travelling together or as part of a group. We do not offer a twin-room service where we place you into a room with another student from the school)

Important information

Minimum booking is 1 week (plus course).

We do not offer an ‘accommodation only’ service and you must enrol onto a course to book accommodation through the school.
