English and Internships

Internships to help you learn English

This offers you the opportunity to develop the essential skills for working in an English speaking country: communication skills, people skills, time management, cultural understanding, etc. This is an excellent way to develop your English ability and improve your future career prospects at home or abroad. PLEASE NOTE: Internships can only be taken after you have studied our General and Business English course for six weeks. This is so you can be sure that your English skills are at the necessary level for an office or other workplace.

The English & Internship programme is available to EU students only. All students must have upper intermediate level English (approximately IELTS 5.0, CEF level B2) before beginning a work placement. Depending on your initial level of English, you may need to extend your period of English language study before reaching the required English level. Please send a full CV (resume) and a letter detailing what type of company and position you are seeking and why you would be a suitable candidate (min 200 words) to info@gse-edinburgh.com with 'Work Placement Application' in the subject line.

The teachers make me laugh and they also make me feel that they are concerned for me, not just as a student of English but as a person too. When you are far away from home that’s very important. At the end of every week, they ask what you liked and what they can do to help you improve your English skills.
