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
  • 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)



When I arrived, I was worried because I didn’t speak much English and I was in a new city. However, the first time I came into one of the School’s classrooms I was so pleased to find just how great the School is and that the teachers are all very helpful and supportive.
