About the university : The English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad, was founded in 1958 as the Central Institute of English (CIE), as an institution to impart quality training in English for teachers. Gradually the Institute extended the scope of its goals, viz., to improve the standard of English Teaching; to undertake relevant research; and to publish materials, to foreign languages. It was therefore renamed the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL) in 1972 with the addition of three major foreign languages German, Russian and French. In 1973, CIEFL was awarded the status of a deemed university. Venturing into newer territories like curriculum development, evaluation, and methodology researches, two new campuses were set up at Shillong (1973) and Lucknow (1979) to include a larger population in its activities.
In 2006 CIEFL was given central university status and accordingly came to be called the English and Foreign Languages University by an act of the Parliament. Now, the EFL University has 7 schools and 26 Departments. Apart from graduate, postgraduate, and Research programmes, EFLU offers postgraduate diplomas, and distance and part time mode courses.
