Description of centre

The College of International Education (CIE) is a friendly, independent and professional language school founded in 1974.

It is located 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.

We provide a variety of courses including:
General English
Exam classes
Pre-boarding school courses
Business foundation course
Summer courses
Junior courses

CIE offers small class sizes (usually no more than 6 students per class), qualified teachers and personal support which helps to improve your English quickly. CIE's close family atmosphere throughout the academic year helps to make intensive study easier and much more pleasant

CIE is fully accredited by the British Council, the Independent School’s Inspectorate (ISI) and has Highly Trusted Sponsor Status granted by the UK Border Agency. It is also a member of ENGLISH UK.

“The quality of education is excellent because of the depth and breadth of course planning and high quality of teaching and learning”. (ISI Inspection)

Rigorous attention is paid to health and safety … The quality of pastoral care exceeds expectations. Excellent relationships prevail amongst students and between students and staff”. (ISI Inspection)
