Custodial family

In some cases, you may need to show your relationship to your exchange student. A custodial guardianship form provides confirmation that you are the exchange student's host family and are permitted to have access to their grades and secure urgent and routine medical care for them.

Keep in mind that you are not the legal guardian of your student. Their parents abroad remain their legal guardians for them throughout the exchange and EF High School Exchange Year is the sponsor for their stay in the UK. As a host family, you will be able to access a custodial guardianship form online, should you need it.
