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 provides students with a free online study platform, which includes many hours' worth of IELTS, FCE, CAE, and CPE exam practice, as well as general English. Students have the opportunity to practise their skills and grammar, as well as vocabulary in specially designed exercises. They also receive a monthly personal tutorial and study plan, as well as progress tests very six weeks.

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.
