Course content

Students follow a daily programme of 15 English language lessons in the morning, while afternoons are devoted to cultural study trips with their new friends.

Each afternoon, students can explore a new part of Edinburgh and the South of Scotland. The class curriculum is integrated into the afternoon activities. There is a lot to learn about Holyrood Palace, Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Castle, and much more.

Each week there is also one full-day excursion further afield so students can make the most of their time in Scotland and see the highland mountains, castles and other famous Scottish cities.

There is also one afternoon per week on site for organised sports and arts activities led by IH staff. Your child can choose from a range of options such as rounders, IH Olympics, football, drama, yoga, woodland walks or arts and crafts. All the activities are run so students are with their own age group.

There is a full programme in the evenings too, with quizzes, fashion shows, film nights and a disco.

Students practise their English inside and outside of the classroom, for the best learning experience.
