Student Trips to Edinburgh

As the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is rapidly growing in popularity as a must-see destination thanks to its ancient architecture, stunning landscape and incredible culture. Although it’s increasingly cosmopolitan, the city has a down-to-earth nature that makes it instantly appealing. The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are classified as a UNESCO world heritage site for a unique destination that has historic yet a modern appeal.

The city begs to be explored; with many hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. The wealth of inspiration available in this city has led to it being dubbed a ‘World City of Literature’ by UNESCO. In fact, J.K. Rowling has confessed that she was inspired to write Harry Potter whilst living in Edinburgh.  Your students can follow in the esteemed writer’s footsteps and gain some inspiration of their own from this exceptional city.

Edinburgh Castle is an enduring symbol of the city and is a world famous icon of Scotland. The historic castle dominates the city’s skyline and sits atop the Castle Rock. Previously home to kings and queens, and then more recently used as a military base, the castle is a fantastic attraction with a wealth of learning opportunities for your students.

The city is home to an array of parks and gardens, ideal for escaping the city centre and enjoying a restful place to study, read or just to relax and unwind.

Whatever your plans for study in Edinburgh, the team at StudyLink can help you to create your perfect educational trip.
