We are confident that you will find a course that will help you to improve your English language skills and to achieve your academic or career goals.

Global School of English - Edinburgh wants you to have a great time and learn about Edinburgh and Scotland by organising school trips and social events. From September to June there are 1-3 social events each week and in July and August we will have 3-5 social events each week.

Teachers go with you to the event, answer your questions and help you practise your English outside of the classroom. It is also a good time to meet and speak to students from other classes.

School trips are usually in or near Edinburgh and you will need between £5 and £10 to cover the cost of any public transport costs and entrance fees. Some activites are free. If you would like to do something or go somewhere in particular, please recommend a destination to us.
