Why Choose Chichester?

Read what students, staff and inspection reports have to say about studying at Chichester College.

"What I like about Chichester College is there are a lot of different nationalities studying here, so I can learn not only about the British culture but also other cultures. They also study English so that we can improve our English skills together. ."

Asumi Japanese Student

I would recommend Chichester College to international students who want to improve their English. It's been an amazing experience with lovely people and staff. If you have a problem you always have someone to speak to.

Homestay Accommodation

Staying with our Homestay Hosts provides a unique opportunity to stay in a local home where hosts and students learn from each other. You will experience British culture first-hand, and your host will also be delighted to learn about you. It's a great way to improve your English. Homestay means living in a house with a local host (this may be a single person, couple or family). Homestay is available to all students on full-time courses.

You can specify whether you wish to be in a smoking or non-smoking household and choose to stay in accommodation with or without pets or children.

All our homestay providers are inspected by a member of the accommodation team each academic year. We conduct a fire risk assessment, ensure that an annual gas safety check is carried out, and ensure hosts complete our safeguarding module in line with the college policy. Our host providers provide unlimited internet to their students at no extra cost.
All adults living in the house are DBS checked (Police criminal record check).
Our homestay option is available at either Chichester College or Worthing College.
