The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide. We call this cultural relations.
We build trust and understanding for the UK to create a safer and more prosperous world. In terms of our reach and impact, we are the world’s leading cultural relations organisation. Cultural relations is a component of international relations which focuses on developing people-to-people links and complements government-to-people and government-to-government contact.
We use English, arts, and education and society – the best of the UK’s great cultural assets – to bring people together and to attract partners to working with the UK. The British Council has over 7,000 staff working in 191 offices in 110 countries and territories.
In Chile we focus particularly on English and the arts, where we work together with the government and local private bodies, ensuring our products and services are available for all.
Our offer in education is currently aimed at higher education opportunities in the UK. Our aim is to ensure that our programmes deliver the greatest possible impact. We do this by working with collaborators at a global and local level, with the aim of benefiting from teamworking and drawing on a wide pool of resources.
