Homestay accommodation means living in a local home, and it is one of the best ways to ensure you make the most of your time practising English outside the classroom. It is also a good way to get to know the way of life and culture of Scotland and Britain.

Hosts are generally native English speakers and are a mix of couples, single people and families with children. Homes are located within a maximum of 45 minutes door-to-door. It is usually necessary to combine a short walk with a bus ride, all accommodation is conveniently located close to city centre bus routes.

Homestay accommodation is available from the Sunday afternoon before a course starts until the Saturday after a course finishes. Availability of extra nights is not guaranteed but may be possible outside the peak season (July and August). Please check with us at the time of booking.
