Accommodation Options

Homestay: Opting for homestay accommodation is among the most effective methods for students to enhance their English-speaking skills. Family life in these settings is characterized by its informality, warm hospitality, friendliness, and conversational atmosphere, providing ample opportunities to practice English.

The Edinburgh homestays are situated across various areas in the city, with an average travel time of 40 minutes from the school and approximately 20 minutes to the city center. It’s important to note that travel times may be significantly longer during peak weeks, such as the Edinburgh Festival.

Additionally, the homestay packages include both breakfast and dinner, available seven days a week, ensuring a comfortable and convenient stay for students.

CES Residential: We take great pride in our contemporary residential accommodations, which are conveniently located just a 20-minute walk from the school and a mere 10-minute stroll from Princes Street.
