Happy students in library

British Council

We promote and support the exchange and mobility of students, scholars and academics into and outward from Wales and higher education collaborations and partnerships between universities, industry and governments around the world. We shape and drive internationalising higher education through thought leadership and policy in Wales, the UK and globally.

What we do 

We enable student and academic mobility and partnerships between universities, industry and government.
