The University has two regional centres — one each at Shillong and Lucknow, to cater for the needs of the students of the North-eastern and Northern parts of India respectively.
Nestled among the pines in one of the most scenic cities of North-East India, the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) Shillong Campus was established in Shillong in 1973 as the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL) North-East Campus, one year after Meghalaya achieved statehood. The aim of establishing this campus was to cater to the linguistic and research needs of the region as well as to provide quality training for teachers.
The campus offers courses in BA English/Mass Communication and Journalism, MA in English/Linguistics /Mass Communication and Journalism, M.Phil and PhD courses in English Literature and English Language Education, along with Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses in French, German and Spanish languages
Situated on the banks of Gomti, the Lucknow campus is housed in the Moti Mahal Campus, RanaPratap Marg, Lucknow. A city with a magical charm, Lucknow has a unique ability to assimilate the new into the old, to look to the present and the past.
The EFL University Campus at Lucknow was started in 1979 to provide training to university/college teachers of English in northern India, but it slowly emerged as a full-fledged Centre offering PG Diploma in the Teaching of English, degree and research programmes. The campus has been actively engaged in conducting refresher courses for university and college teachers, proficiency courses for a wide spectrum of learners and contact programmes for the participants of Postgraduate Certificate course in the Teaching of English. The campus also offers a Postgraduate Diploma in Communication. All programmes run by the Campus are face-to-face and are not offered through the distance mode. The campus has its own library and hostel.
