We uniquely combine the UK’s deep expertise in arts and culture, education and the English language, our global presence and relationships in over 100 countries, our unparalleled access to young people and influencers and our creative sparkle.

We work directly with individuals to help them gain the skills, confidence and connections to transform their lives and shape a better world in partnership with the UK. We support them to build networks and explore creative ideas, to learn English, to get a high-quality education and to gain internationally recognised qualifications.

The British Council in Syria

The UK has a long history of cultural relations with Syria. Currently, the British Council office in Syria is closed and our operations are suspended. We remain committed to resuming our operations in Syria as soon as the situation permits.
