English courses in the centre of Edinburgh

The Caledonian Language School opened in September 2011, a new school with a body of well-experienced and highly qualified teaching staff, and a Principal with nine years of management experience in education.

Early in 2012, we became a recognised Cambridge exam preparation centre.

In June, we received approval from the Scottish Qualifications Authority as an assessment centre for SQA certificates in ESOL. This means that students can gain qualifications which are recognised by British employers and universities.

The British Council inspected and accredited Caledonian Language School in May 2013.

So far, we have offered classes at levels from Pre-intermediate to Advanced plus examination preparation for Cambridge FCE, CAE and IELTS. We plan to offer the same range of successful programs, plus of course SQA units in ESOL, which can be taken at levels from Pre-Intermediate (SQA Access 3) to Advanced (SQA Higher).


Edinburgh truly is one of the best study destinations you can find. The city is world-famous for its beauty and for the warmth of its inhabitants. After London, it is the most-visited city in the UK – and rightly so. The cultural possibilities of the city, combined with its sporting and leisure facilities add real value to time spent studying in Scotland. As a place to live and study, Edinburgh more than meets the expectations of students. It’s also very easy to visit other cities or the Scottish countryside – surely among the most beautiful landscape in the world.

Edinburgh... Scotland’s world-famous capital!

English courses in Edinburgh

At the Caledonian Language School, from September to June, we offer English courses at a variety of levels, from Pre-Intermediate to Advanced. You can study English full-time during the day, or take a part-time English course in the evening. You can take a General English course, or prepare for an examination like Cambridge First Certificate or IELTS. Before starting your course, you will take a placement test to establish your level of English. You will be able to discuss what will suit you best, depending on your level of English and other commitments. These courses are all offered in blocks of 8-12 weeks.

In July and August, we offer shorter courses with flexible start and finish dates, allowing students to experience Edinburgh for 2-3 weeks or more and improve their English at the same time. The aim of these courses is to bring out the language that students already have, and make them more active users of English.
