Based in a stunning historical townhouse, our partner school’s Edinburgh location is only a stone’s throw away from the iconic St Andrew Square, as well as the city’s main train station. With 13 spacious classrooms all complete with interactive whiteboards, this school offers an optimal environment for studying English. You’ll have access to a study centre and prayer room, in addition to a common area where you can bond with classmates. When lessons are over, head to any of the nearby restaurants, cafes or boutique shops for some delicious food or retail therapy. If you’re after something a little more peaceful, the numerous gardens and parks throughout the city provide beautiful green sanctuaries to relax in after a day of studying.
