Online courses at SSC Edinburgh


You don’t need to be in Edinburgh to study with SSC.  You can even study from the comfort of your own home using SSC‘s online tutoring program, 

How it works is that students sign up to the course via a Google link, and we work online, either 1 to 1 or as as a group, to edit a text together or to discuss a topic. At the same time, your SSC online tutor provides explanations/feedback on why one language choice is better than another.  In this way, you experience first-hand the process of writing about and and discussing an academic or business topic with an expert native-speaker teacher, The course includes an integrated self-study program that maximises your learning, allowing you to study as much as you want when you want.  .


Courses can be tailored to suit your specific area of academic or business interest.  For example, engineering, law, psychology, marketing etc. 

There is also an integrated self-study program that ensures maximum learning for minimum class time and cost.

Summer School Edinburgh

At SSC you use the English language environment that surrounds you!

SSC believes that learning  a language takes place, not just by in-class study,  but by experiencing the language first-hand, and this is the reasoning behind the SSC’s project and activity-based approach.

When you are in an English-speaking country, it makes sense to make use of the English language environment that surrounds you, and on the

SSC Summer School you use in-class time as preparation for, and also feedback on, integrated project activities that take you on study tours to Edinburgh’s main historical and cultural sites.

On your  study tours, you can opt to have a native-speaker ‘study guide’ whose job it is to help you with your project work and make sure that use  English at all times.

You can also opt to go on integrated study tours to the Highlands, including to Loch Ness and to Glenfinnan, where you can ride on the famous “Harry Potter” steam train.

In August, the Edinburgh Festival makes Edinburgh THE place to be, and SSC runs a special ‘Edinburgh Festival’ course that allows you to experience all the fun and excitement of the Festival first-hand, as a participant!  Yes! – If you can dance, sing, act, play a musical instrument, or tell a joke, you can perform in street performances and at SSC to a live audience as part of the the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
