Kaplan International

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.

Milton Road residence

ESL Language Milton House residence Kaplan Edinburgh

Wedged between the natural beauty of both Holyrood Park and Musselburgh Beach, in a sleepy suburb of Edinburgh – this residence is perfect for students who want a peaceful stay in Scotland, just a 35-minute bus ride from school. Students will be placed in single rooms with an en-suite bathroom, storage space, desk, lamp, chair and a notice board. Throughout their stay, students will need to cater for themselves using the fully stocked kitchen shared with their fellow students. The residence will provide students with linen and will change it regularly – students should bring their own towels and wash them using the coin-operated laundry facilities. While students are encouraged to keep their own space clean, the property will also do a light cleaning of the rooms once per week. The residence offers several shared facilities for students to use after their classes, including a common room, pool table and study area. For students who want an extra level of relaxation and fitness, the residence also offers access to a gym and spa for a fee.
