About us

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

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

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.
