A BUSINESS that will bring in young foreign students to the UK to live with families and attend local schools has been launched in Portsmouth and Southampton.

MyEducation is already established in Denmark and Norway and exists to help the students and their host families learn about different cultures as well as improving foreign language skills.

The company will also be sending British students abroad as it develops a network across the continent and further afield.

It is now seeking host families around the country who will be able to look after a foreign student aged between 16 and 18 for a five or ten month placement.

Nicky Butler, who has set up the British branch and is based in Southampton, said: ‘As an exchange student or a host family with MyEducation, people will be able to learn much about the world, one another and themselves.’
