Cambridge Assessment International Education



Dear Colleague

Our educational offer has expanded well beyond our programme of 20 years ago when we first used the name Cambridge International Examinations. After consulting widely, we have decided to change our name to
Cambridge Assessment International Education.

Assessment and therefore examinations remain at the heart of what we do and that is why our new name includes the word ‘assessment’. It also shows more clearly that we are part of Cambridge Assessment and share in its unrivalled expertise.

But the most significant part of the name change isn’t what we’ve taken away, it’s what we’ve added – the word ‘education’. This is to reflect our desire to help you develop the whole education that you provide for your students. Watch the video below to learn more about our name change.


We are also introducing Cambridge Pathway as a new way to describe our educational programmes for schools.

We are launching some other exciting new programmes and services, too. For example, we are extending our Cambridge Global Perspectives programme to make it available for 5 to 14 year olds. I also talk about this in the video.

Although our name is changing, our programmes and qualifications will retain the same high quality that schools and universities worldwide have come to trust. Our relationship with the University of Cambridge is unchanged.

You will continue to see our old name on some materials as we work through the process of updating them. We don’t expect you to change our name on your communications immediately, but as and when you next update them.

We are excited about these changes and look forward to working with you to help every student learn, discover and achieve.

Yours faithfully

Michael O’Sullivan
