Students can join us for every stage of their academic journey. Our Group is home to three prestigious independent day and boarding schools in Oxford, five University Partnerships across the UK and Europe, and six English Language schools across Canada, USA and the UK.

Our History
Oxford International Education Group was founded in 1991 as ISIS Education and Travel by David Brown and Robert Darell. The company started operating outbound tours for UK University students through the academic year from September to June. During the summer, we established summer English languages courses for international students.

To gain financing to grow the business, the Founders turned to the Prince’s Trust, one of the UK’s most successful youth charities. The Trust offered David and Robert a £5,000 loan and two mentors to help see the business through the next stage of its lifecycle. Oxford International has grown to be one of the top 10 businesses sponsored by the Trust and remains closely associated with it today.

The education opportunities we can offer students from around the world have grown in diversity and size since then, enabling us to support over 500,000 students since 1991.
