Choosing Your Accommodation

Students who study abroad do so because they are looking for an authentic local experience and students who choose to study in Edinburgh will find themselves immersed in a city rich in culture and heritage. Our warm and friendly hosts come from a variety of careers and backgrounds but they all share the same passion for welcoming students into their homes and like nothing better than sharing a natter over a cup of tea and a biscuit.

Homestay accommodation
