Oxford International Education Group (OIEG) was founded in 1991 as ISIS Educational Services Ltd with the idea of operating educational tours for UK students in the winter months and summer language schools in the summer.
At the beginning, ISIS solicited financial assistance from the Prince Charles’s ‘Prince’s Trust’. Within eighteen months, ISIS had grown to be one of the largest and most successful businesses within the trust and received accolades at St. James Palace in October 1993. To this day, Oxford International remains closely linked to the Prince’s Trust and advises on sponsorship of new businesses within the South London area.
