Golden Age

This Club 50 course consists of 20 General English lessons complemented by 3 historic and cultural activities per week (in the afternoon). It is a great way to learn English and explore both Scottish culture and Edinburgh. An intermediate understanding of the English language is required to enter this course (minimum level B1). The course can be booked for either 1 or 2 weeks. It is also possible to book additional activities at the school, when still available.
If insufficient students are attending the course at the same level, classes will be mixed with students of all ages. So, if this situation arises, you will be in a group with not just 50+ students. 50+ Course activities will, however, always solely take place with 50+ participants.

The Club 50 course will no longer be offered in 2020.

Minimum age is 50 years .

Shared apartment with locals

Living with locals will allow you to immerse yourself into the language and the Scottish culture. The accommodation in one of the shared apartments with locals is the right choice for you if you would like to be more independent. This accommodation is based on self catering, meaning you will have to prepare your own meals in the shared kitchen.

Host family

Living with a Scottish family in Edinburgh is the best way to fully understand and appreciate the Scottish way of life. The host families are fully accustomed to having foreign students and are incredibly friendly. You will integrate into the family very quickly and practice English at every opportunity.

You can choose between breakfast or half board. Please note that you will not be allowed to use the kitchen to prepare your own meals. If you would like to more independent and prepare your own meals, we recommend the accommodation in a shared apartment with locals or in the residence.

Residence

The residence is located in the Broughton quarter, conveniently located a short distance from the city centre. The school is located at about 20 minutes walking distance. The residence provides apartments with 5-7 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and a common living room and kitchen. In each apartment there is Wi-Fi available (supplement). In the complex there is also a common room with television. This space is open 24 hours a day and accessible to all residents, including British students. Bed linen is provided, but will not be washed. You can use washing machines and dryers in the complex. Your stay is based on no meals.
