Scotland’s political and administrative capital is famous for its open and friendly atmosphere, where you will spot kilts under the tables in even the hippest bars and restaurants. The city is international but with all the local events and numerous festivities that take place here, you would be forgiven for thinking of Edinburgh as a kind of oversized metropolitan village. The Highlands are just over an hour’s drive away and invite you to hike through untamed nature.
A university town, Edinburgh is also the UK's second financial centre after London and a European leader when it comes to equity assets. It is home to many international company headquarters in the banking and insurance sector. Simply put: this is the perfect place to learn English and drive your professional career forward.
