Education information

Virtual Campus

The self-access section of our Information Centre has a wide range of information materials about education and training courses, seminars and other programmes available in or from Britain. We also have a complete section of the British Council main website devoted to Education Information.

The UCAS Web site offers you the opportunity to find out more about British Universities' and Colleges' entrance requirements, as well as for more details about courses being offered at these institutions of learning.

Other links offer detailed information about the UK education system and qualifications. Try the Campus World site, and the higher education universities and colleges(hesa) site.

After you have collected information from these various sources, we realise that you may still have further queries. For this reason, we are able to offer you an education counselling session, subject to advance appointment, with our Information Centre Manager.
