Cambridge University

As one of the most prestigious universities in the world, Cambridge University has had a long and celebrated history. Founded in 1209, Cambridge University is the second oldest university in the English-speaking world and because of its strength in education and cutting-edge research, Cambridge University was ranked the second best university in the world in 2013 by the Economist Review. Cambridge University is proud of both its heritage and its role within the world today, and it is hoped that this is transferred to graduates of the courses that the university run.

The importance of the English language has greatly changed over the last 100 years, and Cambridge University has played a key role in that transition with the work it has carried out around the globe to promote, train and evaluate within the field of English to Students of Other Languages (ESOL). Cambridge University Press pioneered ESOL coursebooks and resource books, and to this day is one of the largest publishers of ESOL books in the World. The University established internationally recognized ESOL testing in 1940. Today, Cambridge University’s suite of ESOL exams are the most widely taken international test of English language ability in the world and are being used in a range of different situations: achievement tests in highschools; entrance exams for universities; proficiency tests for immigration into English-speaking countries; as well as proof of language ability to work at national and multi-national companies.

Cambridge University has also always been at the forefront of English-language teacher training. Having created the first certificate course for language teachers in the 1960s, Cambridge University has worked ceaselessly with language professionals and language schools around the world to provide quality teacher training. Maintaining the highest standards in quality, educational practices and up-to-date research in ESOL theory the Cambridge University CELTA course has long been the most highly-regarded and internationally-recognized certificate course for language teaching in the world.

Cambridge University is proud to offer TESOL certification for successful completion of the CELTA program and is proud of the quality language teaching that course graduates provide around the world.
