Study Abroad in Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the Athens of the North

Edinburgh Work Experience

Edinburgh has high culture, lofty ideals, philosophy, the arts, the sciences, and loads of festivals. It's also a medieval city--the Royal Mile leads from Edinburgh Castle on Castle Rock, down to Holyrood Palace, the home of Queen Elizabeth II.

Energetic and youthful due to its universities and colleges, the capital of Scotland is as much a modern and cosmopolitan city as it is a living reminder of its ancient roots, made famous through Scottish legend and literature. It is the administrative, legislative, and financial hub of Scotland, and serves as the country’s cultural center.


Edinburgh is teeming with internship opportunities for students. EPA has developed a strong network of companies across various industries to offer placements to our interns. EPA students receive competitive placements for internships from a broad portfolio of opportunities. Since the 1970s we have provided internships for our students, initiating their professional life for a better future.


Semester students take two course modules at Edinburgh Napier University from a wide selection that is offered. All summer students participate in a class arranged by EPA that covers the History and Culture of Scotland.

Edinburgh Accommodation


Students are housed in apartments centrally located in a splendid 18th century part of the city known as "Newtown". It is within very easy walking distance of Princes Street, the main shopping area of the city. Newtown is full of restaurants and bars that are very popular with the large student population and we have had excellent feed-back from students on recent programs.
