Study in the UK was set up as a British Council service in Bulgaria in late 1999. It aims to provide structured information about all levels of education in the UK and to offer a comprehensive language course placement service at British Council accredited language schools and centres in the UK.



In the self-access section of our Library you can find information on education in the UK

English Language Courses in the UK
There are over 350 schools, colleges and universities offering English language courses in the UK. They offer a range of courses at all levels and for all ages. All courses emphasise learning the language by using it, not just studying it.

We can supply you with a catalogue of British Council accredited language schools in the UK and brochures of most of them. You can then choose one or more of these schools and contact them directly. At you will find continuously updated information about British Council accredited courses and will be able to:

  • search on-line from over 1,500 courses at over 350 centres
  • view details of price, class size, accommodation, social programme and more

We would be pleased to help you choose the course that is most appropriate to your needs and budget and then make all the arrangements to place you on it. We do not charge a fee for this service. If you want our assistance, please make an appointment with:
