CAE is seen by institutions of higher education in many countries as proof of adequate language skills for courses taught and assessed in English. Almost all universities in the United Kingdom and a growing number in the USA recognize CAE, as do many employers throughout the world. A list of institutions and employers that recognize CAE.
