Welcome to CIE Oxford

Study English in Oxford …

 Study in Small Classes with Personal Support

During the academic year, our class size usually contains no more than 8 students—often half the size of groups at most other schools. CIE’s close family atmosphere throughout the academic year helps to make intensive study easier and much more pleasant. Read comments from our students .

Study in the City Centre

CIE’s Bocardo House is in the centre of Oxford, opposite the world-famous Oxford Union. Our busy summer school is also held in city centre facilities, such as Oxford University’s Lady Margaret Hall, near the University Parks.

Free Access to CIE Online

When you register with us, you get your personal account with CIE Online, our interactive learning database. All the material is customised to your personal needs, so you can study as much as you want in your free time. This includes hundreds of IELTS exam practice papers and your personalised timeline. When you leave CIE, you are given three free months to access your account.

Pathway to University and Boarding Schools

Our highly-rated Business Foundation course will prepare you for University in the UK and help you to achieve the IELTS score you require. This course is recognised and approved by Oxford Brookes University. We also have a proven record of success in preparing students to attend a UK Boarding School with our Pre-Boarding course. We have a partnership agreement with over 15 Boarding Schools in the UK.


Flexible Evening Lessons from March


Join lessons when you like and how often you like!

We are offering evening classes, so that students who work during the day have a chance to improve their English for an affordable price. They are completely flexible to suit our students’ busy lives. Simply buy vouchers before you go to your first lesson and choose a day you like. (Vouchers can be bought at CIE. Alternatively, please call or email CIE.)


We offer two classes. One for levels A2/B1 and one for B2/ C1. Lessons are based on communication skills, and are adapted to you and your specific needs. The focus is mainly on skills, like speaking and listening.


The aim of the course is to develop your language skills so you can master ‘real-life’ situations quickly. This course will enable you to become a more confident and fluent English speaker, whilst making new friends along the way. It is ideal for people who are new to Oxford.
