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:
Pre-boarding school courses
Business foundation course
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.
