Welcome to Quality Development Unit
For many years the UK has rightly held a reputation for being a world leader in welcoming international students. The British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is personally leading an initiative to make access to UK education even easier for students all over the world.
The British Council is playing a number of key roles in this initiative. Quality Development Unit has developed a wide range of services and materials to support international students and UK educational institutions.
If you are an international student, visiting our site will help you prepare for study in the UK. If you are a UK educational institution, it can provide you with the information and support you need to succeed in your international initiatives.
