Free General English Courses for Displaced People

The Centre for Open Learning offers displaced persons the opportunity to take General English courses for free. These free places are available only for displaced people in Scotland, i.e. people from an area of instability or a zone of conflict who have refugee status, or indefinite leave to remain, are asylum seekers, or under humanitarian protection. This includes people from Ukraine, Syria, Afghanistan and Hong Kong. If you do not meet this criterion, please do not apply.

We offer three courses at Beginners and Elementary level in the mornings. These are exclusively for displaced persons.

We also offer two courses at Intermediate and Upper Intermediate level in the evenings. These are courses for the wider public (full class details below) but have places reserved for displaced persons.
