Edinburgh's oldest and most famous tutorial college, founded in 1929 to offer ‘bespoke education for all’, comes under the umbrella of the Oxford Intensive School of English (OISE) empire.

College is an accredited exam centre for SQA, Edexcel, OCR and AQA, plus Cambridge exams on the EFL side.
Special Education Needs
Our Tutorial College offers student-centred individual tuition as well as tuition for examinations in small classes of up to 6 students. Our tutors are familiar with teaching students with a variety of learning difficulties and can work with them on an individual basis. We are experienced in presenting students who require special arrangements (readers, scribes etc.) for examinations. Being a small college we are able to offer a caring, supportive environment for students with particular learning difficulties. Our premises in Queen Street have facilities for students who require wheelchair access. We share our facilities with our English Language School which specialises in teaching English to overseas students. 10-09
