About Cambridge English

Cambridge English Schools are supported by the joint experience and expertise of Cambridge University Press and Cambridge English Language Assessment. We are part of the University of Cambridge, the world’s number one university, and committed to excellence in education.

Our work is backed up with extensive research and validation. Exams and materials are based on a deep understanding of how English works and how students learn. We have built the largest corpus of language learner data in the world, and we are continually gaining new insights into how we can support learners.

Cambridge English has been a leading organisation in the development of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) . This gives us unrivalled expertise in understanding how the framework applies to schools around the world. We are leading a research programme to define the vocabulary, grammar and functional English mastered at each CEFR level – the English Profile Programme .
