We combine language training with cultural exchange, academic achievement and educational travel

At EF Education First, we believe that the world is better when people try to understand one another. Since 1965, EF has helped millions of people see new places, experience new cultures, and learn new things about the world and about themselves.

Our experiential learning programs—focused on language, travel, cultural exchange, and academics—help turn dreams into opportunities for people of all ages and nationalities.

Academic study

Earn a degree, certificate, or credential.

We offer degree programs at secondary, university, and post-graduate levels. Students who attend our schools go on to study at the world’s best universities. We are also associated with Hult International Business School, renowned for its top-ranked graduate and undergraduate programs.

Educational travel

Turn the world into your classroom

EF leads expertly guided tours to the world’s greatest sights and landscapes. Itineraries are tailored to the needs of teachers and students at all levels. We also develop adventures and travel experiences for people of all ages and interests.

Learn a language

Communicate with the world in 10+ languages

An EF language course can help you talk to the world, in English and other widely spoken languages. We have fully accredited schools in 50 of the world’s most exciting cities, as well as EF English Live – the world’s largest online English school.

Cultural exchange

Our exchange programs give young adults the chance to experience America as a local. Host families provide safe and secure homes in US communities for our high school students choosing to study for a year abroad.
