About us

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations.

British Council Scotland brings the best of international education and arts to Scotland. We also help Scottish students, teachers, artists, and others connect with people around the world. We enrich people’s lives in Scotland and abroad through the exchange of ideas, skills and experiences.

Building trust between the people of Scotland and other countries helps create trade and business links. By broadening people’s horizons and connecting Scots to other countries and cultures, we help boost Scotland’s economic prosperity.
