The English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad, was founded in 1958 as Central Institute of English (CIE).

This institution was set up to impart quality training in English for teachers.

Gradually the Institute extended the scope of its goals, to improve the standard of teaching of English; to undertake relevant research; and, to introduce foreign languages.

In 1972, it was renamed the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL) with the addition of three major foreign languages German, Russian and French.

Campuses: In 1973, CIEFL was awarded the status of a deemed university. Venturing into newer territories like curriculum development, evaluation, and methodology, two new campuses were set up in Shillong (1973) and Lucknow (1979) to cater for the needs of language practitioners in the North East and the North.

Languages taught:  Dedicated to the study of English and ten foreign languages (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Persian), it is the only one of its kind in South Asia.

At EFL advanced research and training in the areas of teacher education, literature, linguistics, interdisciplinary studies, and cultural studies are being carried out.

EFL University has 7 schools and 26 Departments. Apart from graduate, postgraduate, and research programmes, EFL University offers postgraduate diplomas, and degrees through the distance mode.

Other Programmes: This institution offers training to private and governtment teachers from India as well as from foreign countries. As for as language studies are concerned,  it offers both short term as well as long term courses depending upon the need of the society.    

Apart from training teachers, it also provides special training to people from private sectors, government officials and corporate employees.

Beyond this, the institute also constitutes Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) and International Training Progerammne (ITP). After signing MoUs with about 30 universities, the institution collaborates to provide Education, Training, Research, Development, International conferences and publication of research papers.
