Who we are

The British Council is the United Kingdom's international organisation for educational and cultural relations. Our purpose is to enhance the UK's reputation in the world as a valued partner.

We do this by creating opportunity for people worldwide with programmes in education, English language teaching, the arts, science, governance and information through a network of 254 offices and teaching centres in 110 countries.

We receive a grant-in-aid from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and we earn income from teaching English, conducting British examinations and managing development and training contracts.
