Students attending our group programmes are accommodated for the duration of their course with host families in a shared twin room. As parents themselves, the hosts ensure a caring family environment for students and provide them with breakfast and dinner on week days and breakfast, lunch and dinner at weekends.

Living as part of the family helps students to settle quickly in Edinburgh, with strong friendships often formed. All students are supplied with a local bus pass, affording them straightforward transportation from their accommodation to our city centre school.

A typical week

In common with our summer programme, our September to June students enjoy a great balance between language study and the opportunity to enjoy their stay in the city.

We recognise that all groups have their own specific requirements and we can supplement or replace the 15 hour General English tuition element of our standard programme with tailored tuition options including, for example, Cambridge, TOEIC or Trinity exam preparation providing 7.5, 15, 22.5 or 25 hours of tuition per week as required.

This ‘pick and mix’ approach effectively means there’s no such thing as a typical week, with group leaders also able to devise their own programme of excursions and activities - which we can help to theme around the interests of the group.
