Social and Cultural Programme

Update 15 March: Summer School 2021 
Due to continuing uncertainty around international travel as a result of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation, Edinburgh College has made the sad decision to cancel our Summer School for 2021. Affected students should email for more information.

Join our Social & Cultural Programme to make the most of your summer in Edinburgh!

Every week during the Summer School, we organise two-afternoon visits, one evening activity and one full-day Saturday excursion to places of interest in and around Edinburgh. You will have the chance to explore some of the historical and cultural highlights of our beautiful city, as well as having time to get to know your classmates better outside the classroom. We want you to get the most out of your course - and out of Edinburgh too! All of our scheduled social and cultural activities are led by our knowledgeable activity leaders. All entrance tickets and coach hire for trips out of Edinburgh are included in the price you pay for the social and cultural programme.

“The biggest adventure which Summer School offers me is improving my motivation to learn English. My favourite thing about my classes is being between people from all over the world, sharing experiences with them.” – Jiri, Czech Republic

Recently voted the best city to travel to in the UK*, Edinburgh and the surrounding area is full of exciting places to visit and things to do.
