EIL UK Explore Programme Logo




Inspired by Jim and Mary Elphick, who from 1957 dedicated their lives to running the British Association of the Experiment in International Living (now known as EIL UK), thousands of people have experienced and learnt about life in the UK through our programmes. Currently, we are developing a serise of ‘outbound’ programmes for UK adults and young people to explore the world and learn about different cultures.

DeEIL UK Explore Programme Globeveloping the new EXPLORE programmes will boost our international activities and build on our years of experience and connections with our Federation EIL organisations and partners around the world.

All our programs include staying with a local family. Known as the Homestay, this experience is key because participants learn so much more from an immersive and original experience.

EIL’s Explore Programmes offer volunteering opportunities, internships to boost your career and apprenticeship work experiences. Combining a homestay with studying abroad at a High School is popular with students. Explorers of all ages enjoy their individual homestays and cultural learning programmes.
