We offer a diverse programme of evening classes for the general public to enjoy learning Chinese. Our Winter 2019 courses will start week beginning 21 January, and booking for these classes is now open.
All classes take place on the Confucius Institute for Scotland Campus sitting in the shadow of Arthur’s Seat. You can download a map showing the campus layout here – Conf-campus-map
Please note that online registration for the classes through Centre for Opening Learning will close from 13 January 2019. However, we have set up an alternative payment option for students who will register after the deadline. Please register your class here and start from w/b 21 January!

Evening classes run for two hours on the same evening for a ten week term. No assessment is carried out but students are encouraged to test their developing skills by sitting the globally run HSK test.
Excellence in teaching is paramount. Our teachers are seconded from Fudan University which regularly send us experienced senior teachers and a number of Masters candidates in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages. You can see the profiles of our current and previous teachers by clicking here.
Our classes are geared for adult learners at age of 16 and over. For younger learners please enquire about private classes.
