Why Aberdeen?

There are many places you could choose to study English. But there aren’t any like Aberdeen in Scotland!

With its magnificent granite architecture Aberdeen is the jewel of North-East Scotland. It’s a fascinating place, which boasts a long history which can be traced back over 8,000 years. Its stunning landscape of sandy coastline and ancient castles contrasts perfectly with its thriving, cosmopolitan city centre.

It’s small enough to get around easily, yet it has the feel of a modern European city. With streets that you will feel safe to walk, Aberdeen has to be one of the friendliest and most inspiring cities to study in and visit.

We can’t wait to welcome you and show you around!

What’s included in the social programme?

Each weekly course includes four afternoon excursions (2-3 hours each), an evening activity at one of the city’s oldest pubs with traditional Scottish music and a full-day excursion on the Saturday. A teacher will accompany you on all trips and add to your English language development.

We will:

  • Introduce you to the beautiful city of Aberdeen and the surrounding area
  • Accompany you on your exploration of the major tourist attractions including: the Maritime Museum, St. Machar’s Cathedral, the Botanic Gardens, Old Aberdeen and the historic university campus plus the newly renovated Art Gallery
  • Offer you an exciting full-day Saturday excursion to one of these unique experiences: a historic castle and garden, a world-famous whisky distillery, a local Nature Reserve or an action-packed day at the Highland Games.
