Two iconic locations

CCEL has two great locations. Students can choose to study in Christchurch on a modern university campus or in Auckland’s vibrant city centre (or both). Students can change cities easily.

NZQA category 1

CCEL is registered by the NZQA (New Zealand Qualifications Authority) and was rated as a Category 1 institution (the highest possible quality rating) by the NZQA in its most recent audit cycle.

Academic recognition

Our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses are exclusively recognised by the University of Canterbury. Our graduates have direct access (no IELTS required) to programmes at UC and UCIC.

Agent support

Our sales team is committed to provide full sales support to all registered representative agents, ensuring quick responses to enquiries and transparency in all enrolment processes.

Industry recognition

We are proudly members of well-respected industry bodies including English New Zealand and IALC. We are also an official Cambridge English Test Centre (CCEL Christchurch).

99% recommend CCEL

Our weekly departure surveys confirm: 99% of our students would recommend CCEL to a friend or a family member – a clear sign of their satisfaction with their experience with us.
