Social Programme

Beyond the classroom

At Basil Paterson we believe that your learning should continue outside the classroom. We organise a varied social programme to complement your studies.

Enjoy the views from the top of Arthur’s Seat, learn about Scottish history at Edinburgh Castle, take a relaxing walk around the Royal Botanic Gardens and get some exercise with traditional Scottish dancing. We offer something for everyone.

We organise 8 activities per week during the summer months and 4 activities per week during the winter months. A walking tour of the city centre is organised for all new students on their first day.

Visit our Facebook page for photos of recent activities.

  • A chance to practice your English in a more relaxed and informal setting.
  • See the beauty of Scotland’s capital

  • Visit places popular with Edinburgh locals
  • Range of free and low-cost activities.

  • A variety of activities to suit all ages and interests.

  • At least 4 activities per week.
