About the institution: The English and Foreign Languages University was created by an Act of Parliament in 2006 to build upon the achievements of the former Central Institute of English as a Foreign Language (CIEFL), and to expand its activities on the national and global stage. The university has its main campus in Hyderabad and two other campuses in Lucknow and Shillong.
Entrance test. No test. All those found eligible are admitted.
Contact programmes are held at Hyderabad and sometimes at other places within India. Apart from the final evaluation, all programmes have internal assessment which is based on the assignments students are required to do.
The number of assignments and the period of the contact programme differ from programme to programme. Self-instructional material is provided.
Support systems/facilities for students: The university pioneered the use of radio for language learning in 1963, and closed circuit television in 1973. The Centre for Media and Communication has produced a five-year course of 75 graded programmes for learners of English at the elementary and intermediate levels of proficiency, and a course of 25 language teaching programmes for teachers.
