The capital of Scotland, the ancient city Edinburgh is steeped in history and famous for its castle and old tow, which are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Programme list of sites of outstanding cultural or natural importance to common heritage.
Advantage International started its host family based courses here in 2015, these are open to secondary school students of 14 years of age and above.
Our Host Families
Host family accommodation is one of our strongest points ; for over 20 years we have patiently developed a trusted network of friendly families, who are dedicated to making your child’s stay a truly memorable one. All our families must meet our stringent quality demands, and they are of course visited on a regular basis. Another important detail is that our hosts will personally bring (and fetch) your child to the morning and evening meeting points.
Another reason to book your school trip with Advantage is that we will maintain and update - exclusively for your group - a course blog that will enable parents to stay informed and keep in touch. This great extra service is offered free of charge ! Book now for the experience of a lifetime !
Your local coordinator will be available at all times during your course, and will be present every day at the family meeting points. You will also be able to contact your course director at any time during your stay with us.
Your dedicated course coordinator will send you a wish list ; if there are any special requests (for example friends who would like to be together) these must be noted and returned to us. Families can accommodate between 2 and 4 children.
For all students, we will need to know any relevant health information (allergies etc) that must be forwarded to host families. Students are not allowed out in the evening unless they are with their teachers or host families.
