Our Mission

​Cambridge English for Life (CEFL) is an educational organisation dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and committed to providing professional educational services in areas of its demonstrated competence to meet the needs of its students and the community. Through the active integration of teaching, learning, research, and scholarship, CEFL is dedicated to creating an innovative learning environment that promotes mastery of fundamental intellectual disciplines, creativity, and social responsibility.

Our faculty members are driven to promote and deliver excellence in teaching and are nurtured by scholarship and research.
