Are you looking for a school study trip in a small and comfortable city with just half a million inhabitants? Then the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh, is the perfect destination for you and your students.

The castle, the old town centre (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO), the historic buildings, the steep alley ways, the well-groomed gardens, will all bring you back to an ancient and magical time similar to the one depicted in Robert Luis Stevenson’s novels. But Edinburgh’s appeal is not only in its history and traditions: it is a cosmopolitan and elegant city, full of new cultural attractions.

Study holidays will be available all year around with General English Courses and host family accommodation.

Edinburgh is an experience. A city of enormous gifts, whose streets sing of history. Whose cobbles tell tales.
Alan Bold

Scottish poet, biographer and journalist

Study Programme

In Edinburgh, The British International School offers to its groups of students a General English Course with qualified English teachers, combined with a rich and interesting social programme, all year around.

School groups also have the opportunity of attending a theatre workshop delivered by a native speaking actor or doing work experience in different types of shops.

Upon completion, students will receive a certificate of attendance.


Host families

By staying with our friendly host families, students will learn a new language and culture as part of an amazing experience. It can be seen as a relaxed, fun, yet intensive method to improve language skills. The local hosts are able to offer a welcoming environment, support your learning, and provide an authentic window into their culture.

Host families will provide double rooms with shared bathrooms for students; and single rooms with private bathrooms for teachers. They can provide half or full board, free wi-fi and weekly laundry.
