In 2020 the Oxford International Education Group (OIEG) launched an online academic hub – OI Digital Institute – to meet an increased demand for digital learning as a result of Covid-19. We have used this opportunity to integrate our successful face-to-face teaching expertise and experience, and transpose them to the online learning environment.
OI Digital Institute will allow OIEG to continue providing high-quality learning in our online portfolio across three divisions – schools and colleges, university partnerships and English Language. As we continue to meet the growing needs of a changing world our online-only courses supplant traditional academic subjects for pre-university and university students.
“Online learning has come of age in the pandemic and it will play an increasingly important role in higher education in the future. We have launched OI Digital Institute to help international students navigate the new educational landscape and provide them with the best quality online courses.” – said Lil Bremermann-Richard, group chief executive officer at OIEG.
“Online learning has come of age in the pandemic and it will play an increasingly important role in higher education in the future.”
What courses are available?
The OI Digital Institute features courses including; an English Language Level Test for Higher Education admission, English Language Programs, and A-Levels. With our Higher Education Pathways, we also offer solutions for PhD preparation, pre-master, pre-sessional English, in-sessional English and a Language Skills Booster Course, to students across the globe.
In addition, we are opening new pathways to higher education with our Digital University Partnerships to include blended pre-sessional courses; which combine UK language teaching with face-to-face teaching in China, and digital language support programmes for international campuses in countries such as Vietnam.
From March 2020, University of Dundee, Coventry University, University of Greenwich, University of Bangor, De Montfort University International College, University of Hertfordshire, University of Roehampton, University of Strathclyde, and others have worked with us to develop online programmes and now use OI Digital Institute as their trusted digital pathway to higher education and admissions test partner.

At OI Digital Institute our mission is to reduce the barriers to education and provide opportunities for ‘Learning without Limits’. Our online education portfolio, along with our education partners, help us to deliver high-quality education to students wherever they are, assisting them to reach their dream education.
