Established in two adjacent historic buildings, our partner school, Kaplan International, is located in the centre of Edinburgh, only a stone's throw away from the fashionable shops of Princes Street and from the amazing view of the castle. Containing 20 spacious classrooms with interactive whiteboards and a multimedia room with several computers, this school offers an optimal environment for studying English. You will be able to make use of the library/computer room and a large student lounge (with vending machines for snacks and drinks and a microwave) to meet up with other students. If you want to relax after your English classes, go out onto the school patio or take advantage of the numerous parks nearby, such as the Princes Street Gardens, where you can admire the uninterrupted view of the castle and the Old Town, Charlotte Square Gardens or even Calton Hill.

Edinburgh ist wunderschön. Eine bezaubernde alte Stadt mit vielen schönen Geschäften und im Dezember einem schönen Weihnachtsmarkt. Die Schotten sind sehr freundlich. Für den ein oder anderen aber vielleicht ein bisschen schwer zu verstehen wegen dem Akzent, aber nach einer kurzen Zeit hat man sich daran gewöhnt. Die Kaplan Schule war klasse. Wenn man in einer Residenz wohnt (Canal Point) benötigt man nur 15 Minuten per Fuß zur Schule. Die Schule ist nah an der Innenstadt gelegen, sodass man in fünf Minuten in der Shopping-Meile ist. Das Schulgebäude besteht aus zwei verbundenen Gebäuden. Man sollte sich darauf einstellen, dass man möglicherweise viele Treppenstufen läuft, da die Häuser noch sehr alt, bzw typisch Englisch sind. Ansonsten ein schönes Gebäude und eine tolle Schule. Die Lehrer sind super freundlich und helfen einem bei jeder Sache. Sie helfen sogar einem ein Bankkonto oder eine britische SIM-Karte zu bekommen und füllen alle wichtigen Dokumente mit dir zusammen aus, falls jemand damit Hilfe benötigt. Der Unterricht macht Spaß und der Nationalitäten-Mix ist wirklich bunt gemischt. Unterkunft ist super für ein Student. Kleine aber schöne Zimmer. Bett und Sauberkeit war bei mir top. Die nächsten Supermärkte sind gleich um die Ecke (insgesamt 4 Stück : 2 mal Tesco, Coop, Sainsbury). Küche hat alles was man benötigt.

J'ai adoré l’Écosse, un pays qui me fascinait depuis déjà plusieurs années. Les paysages, la mentalité des habitants, tout était merveilleux ! Dommage que les micro-ondes soient si sales que nous n'osons même pas réchauffer nos plats.. La cuisine était très sale et j'ai eu à plusieurs reprises des problèmes avec la douche. Mais dans l'ensemble, c'est un bon logement. Les activités sont presque identiques chaque semaine, dommage. Merci ESL !

Edinburgh is a beautiful, bustling city where you never run out of things to do. The school is also great, with competent teachers and many activities organised. I could meet many people from different countries, my stay was simply great.

I spent an excellent time in Edinburgh; it’s a beautiful city with many things to do, and the pub nights definitely live up to their reputation! I made some amazing friends and spent some very good time with them! However, one month was not enough for me to improve my English; eventually I managed, but it was tough! I think I will go back next year and stay longer. Oh, and I forgot to say that my favourite moment was the Scottish dance! Don’t miss it!

After two months and a half at Kaplan International Colleges – Edinburgh, I can say that I am very satisfied with my choice. The atmosphere at school, at the residence and in the city is very nice. Edinburgh is a city where there is always something to do – you can visit the different tourist sites (museums, mountains, beaches, highlands) or spend some time at the pub!
Edinburgh is an active and dynamic city and I really think it is worth a visit. The school is well located, close to the city centre and to the old town – that’s very convenient. Apart from learning English in a very confortable setting, I am also meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, which is very interesting. Many people are living in the same residence, so you can always hangout with someone. For this reason, I decided to extend my Scottish experience by 2 months and then continue with an internship. I highly recommend this experience!
