First Day at Global School of English

On the first morning you should arrive at school at approximately 8.45am. When your booking is confirmed you will be sent detailed instructions about how to get to the School from your host family or student residential accommodation. Classes commence at 9am and to maximise your learning time we take you straight to your allocated class when you arrive. To ensure that your class level is correct it is essential that you complete our placement test before you travel to Edinburgh.

After the classes are completed new students will meet with one of our staff for a short induction session which covers things like;

  • The school facilities
  • Fire safety procedures
  • Computer access and Wi-fi
  • Global School of English "Learning Zone"
  • Changing class levels
  • Booking a trip on the social programme
  • How to obtain a class book
  • Purchasing a bus or train pass
  • School Rules
  • Obtaining a UK SIM card
  • Police registration (if applicable)



The teachers are very friendly – it’s not like a school! They help you with any questions you have; not just about English but about Edinburgh and Scotland. The classes are small so they have a lot of time for each student. They have definitely helped me improve my English.
