Adult Accommodation

  • Living with a local family is a great way to absorb yourself in Scottish daily life and culture. Our families are happy to answer all questions about Edinburgh, and assist in helping students find their way around the city.

  • We provide students with host family details approximately 4 weeks before they are due to start so they can contact the family to introduce themselves, and provide arrival details.






Homestay Accommodation

(Available all year round)

Edinburgh School of English has a range of homestay who provide a friendly and welcoming environment in which to practise English.  All our families are carefully chosen to ensure that high standards are maintained and our Accommodation & Welfare Officer visits our homestay on a regular basis.

Standard Homestay

All students have a single room, a quiet area to study, breakfast, evening meal and are encouraged to speak English as much as possible.  Some hosts are able to accommodate more than one student, but no two students of the same mother tongue are placed together unless specifically requested.

Executive Homestay

For students who would prefer to have more privacy and comfort, we also have executive families, which offer all the benefits of standard homestay along with a private bathroom for your own use.
