Gaelic Pre Higher is designed for those who have an existing knowledge of the Gaelic language and want to develop their skill set. All material is online with an emphasis on increasing your grammar and language skills. Each online pack contains written exercises which you will send in along with some spoken word. On successful completion of this course, you will be prepared to progress to the Gaelic (Learners) Higher. These courses are challenging and require the ability to study independently.
National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher qualifications, accredited by the SQA, are typically studied at high school and college. These qualifications act as pathways to further study including university entry. Edinburgh College offers a selection of subjects at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels part-time. You may choose to study up to two subjects.
For classes taking place during the day, you will come to Edinburgh College twice a week for a two-hour class. For evening classes you will come to Edinburgh College or an outreach location within the community once a week for a three-hour class.
Course Fees: £300 (approx.) per subject. Fees will be confirmed when the application has been processed.
