The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We work in four key areas: Arts, English, Education and Society. Our purpose is to create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

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.
