Using our global network in over 100 countries, the British Council creates international opportunities for people across the UK. Find out more about some of the cultural relations opportunities we provided last year for UK organisations by clicking on the map.
In 2010-11 the British Council worked with over 9200 UK organisations on 183 initiatives, involving a total of 167 different countries.
We work in Education and Society, the Arts and English Language. We help equip young people in the UK for life in a global society and work in a global economy. We help position the UK as an enabler for countries, communities and individuals to access quality education, life changing experiences and greater opportunities.
We provide a quality kitemark to UK English language providers, attracting around 600,000 students to the UK each year, generating fees and associated income for the UK. In arts, we work with the best of UK creative talent to develop new projects that draw artists, institutions and audiences into a closer dialogue with the UK.
