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 2011-12 the British Council worked with over 10300 UK organisations on 99 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 work with universities across the UK on a range of international education activities. Our support for international student recruitment contributes to bringing more than 350,000 students to the UK each year, creating an estimated export income of £14 billion for the UK. Through a variety of initiatives, we help UK universities to develop overseas partnerships.
