Everything on your Doorstep
Our players are housed in student accommodation in the heart of the city centre of Glasgow. A 5 minute walk from the college where they go to class, and the gym, the accommodation is ideally situated to ensure the best possible student experience.
Our buses pick them up from the accommodation to take them to the training grounds, where everything is in place to ensure the best learning conditions and to provide the best experience during their time at the academy.
Edusport Academy works in collaboration with the "City of Glasgow College" which provides our players with their English lessons. Located 5 minutes walk from their accommodation, the college offers a modern, professional and international environment that meets all the needs of our players for their progress in English.
Divided into different groups according to their level, our players integrate classes where they are mixed with other students, in order to maximise meetings, exchanges and their progress.
Players will be prepared for their internationally recognised exam that they will take at the end of the year.
