We are so lucky to have our host family in Bruges. We shared many beautiful moments this year in Bruges. They made this year even more special and unforgettable

Students are welcomed into the heart of the Bruges' community through the host family project.
Families from Bruges and beyond are allocated to a group of 2 or 3 students according to their interests and hobbies. They invite their students for a lunch or a dinner. Occasionally these host families also invite their students to take part in different sport or cultural activities such as a guided tour of the city or a visit to the coast, horse-riding, rowing, etc.
This initiative enables the students to meet local people and to get to know local customs, and at the same time these Bruges' families meet students from all over the world.
The host families are invited to take part in selected College activities such as the Neighbours' Drink in October and the Christmas Drink in December.
