About Us: 

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. 

English & Exams: 

Through our English and Exams work we aim to achieve more widespread and better-quality teaching and learning of English worldwide and offer access to professional qualifications. Working with policymakers, government ministers, teachers and learners across the world we help millions of people to access English by supporting the teaching and learning of English in public education systems, and through self-access materials and courses. We teach learners and teachers of English face-to-face in dedicated teaching centres and online through a range of courses. Every year three million people take international exams with help from the British Council, gaining qualifications that can open doors at leading academic institutions and improve employment prospects.

Language and other UK qualifications through its Examinations Services. The UK qualifications and assessments that we provide have the power to change people’s lives, enabling them to access life, study or work opportunities overseas or in their own countries.
