Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and an historic centre for culture and education. The beautiful city centre is dominated by the impressive castle which overlooks both the New Town, with its elegant Georgian architecture and bustling shops, and the medieval Old Town, with the famous Royal Mile leading to the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Edinburgh College is a modern campus with easy access to the city centre and a short walk to the local beach. The college has well-equipped classrooms, a modern theatre and a purpose-built dining room.
Experience two afternoons in the Scottish capital a week and visit other Scottish cities on a full day excursion once a week at Edinburgh College.
English by the Beach
Edinburgh College is a short walk from golden sandy beaches. On sunny days, students will be able to choose to visit the beach, play beach games, and make sand castles and art.
