What is the British Council?

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We work in the education sector across all six continents to help share UK expertise and innovation whilst creating partnerships to work together collaboratively.

Science and Research

At the British Council we link scientists to opportunities all over the world. We encourage the exchange of knowledge and skill from research opportunities to fostering scientific talent through educational programmes.
