The College of International Education (CIE), located in the heart of Oxford, has been offering a range of short courses in English as a Foreign Language (EFL), exam preparation, 1-1 tutorials and a range of content and language integrated learning (CLIL) courses on a number of subjects since 1974. We specialise in small classes which ensure fast progress and attention to individual needs and a team of dedicated staff is always there to offer academic as well as pastoral support.


The courses are available face to face and online for high school, university and mature students all year round as well as young learners (10 years old and over) during the summer. The summer school offers a vibrant international experience through communicative language courses and social programmes to help students build confidence and fluency in English, enjoy the beautiful city of Oxford and make friends for life.


The aim of CIE is to enhance the academic and social potential of students, while promoting their understanding and appreciation of the diversity of various cultural traditions. The school provides courses that widen students’ social, professional and educational opportunities. CIE is accredited by the British Council and British Accreditation Council to ensure the courses are delivered to a high standard and appropriate to the abilities and needs of each student. We provide a safe and secure environment in which students and teachers feel empowered

to develop their skills and also feel valued and respected.

“When I arrived, I wasn’t able to talk in English. CIE helped me to gradually gain confidence in myself and thanks to this I have finally reached the level of English necessary to be able to enrol in university. CIE made my dream come true and I will always be grateful”


“I really like how CIE is very sociable and provides extra activities for students to be able to speak more. You make new friends easily. The teachers are very good and always help you.”


“I remember all the times spent at CIE and I think that if I could return I would not think twice about it.”
