The British Council is the UK’s agency for education and culture. We create international opportunities for people worldwide. For over 85 years, we have built long term relationships and connections that have created direct economic and cultural benefit to the UK and the countries we operate in.
We are recognised as the world’s leading cultural relations organisation. With 7,300 staff across 110 countries, working in education, the arts and English, we make a real difference to the lives of millions of people.
We provide access to skills, opportunities and UK expertise to millions of people across the world.
We support the development of people and societies, working in partnership with national, multinational private sector, professional and community institutions as well as offering educational services to thousands of people worldwide.
We are operationally independent from the UK government, which enables us to build trust on the ground in places and with people where relationships with those countries, societies and values are sometimes strained.
Every day, we help thousands of organisations achieve their strategic objectives in over 100 markets worldwide.
The British Council has over 50 years’ experience of successfully managing a wide range of high quality training and scholarship programmes on behalf of national governments, international agencies and the private sector. The services provided under each programme are specifically tailored to the requirements of the client and objectives of individuals.
Our wealth of experience in project and contract management in administering scholarships ensures we are able to deliver wide-ranging services.
We have an unrivalled record for working with young people and successor generations globally through the provision of educational opportunities and skills development.
