Euroexam International was established in September 2000 within International House. Its remit was to develop a standard examination system for the IH World Organisation, to develop public state-accredited language examinations in Central Europe, and to offer testing services to schools internationally. In November 2004, the Euroexam Centre became a wholly independent entity (Euro Examinations Ltd), working in professional partnership with International House. Euroexam International’s administrative centre, which is also responsible for test development and teacher training, is based in Budapest, Hungary. Educational and marketing support for the 85-strong network of local testing centres across Europe and beyond is co-ordinated from Euroexam International's base in London, UK.
