Meet British families

If you’re an international student, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about what it is like to live in Leicestershire.

FOSSIL scheme

Meet and socialise with a local Leicester family for a day through the FOSSIL scheme or download the app 'Friends International' and find a host there. If COVID-related restrictions prevent face-to-face meetings, we will initially offer the chance to meet locals on Zoom (or similar) and to practise your English, switching to meeting in person as soon as this is permitted.
