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. It was renamed the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL) in 1972 and was awarded the status of a deemed university in 1973. Shillong (est. 1973) and Lucknow (est. 1979) are the other two campuses. 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. 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.
