Higher Education


We promote and support the exchange and mobility of students, scholars and academics into the UK and outward. We promote and support collaborations and partnerships between universities, industry and governments. We shape and drive the internationalisation of higher education through thought leadership, research and policy dialogues in the UK and globally. Visit our IHE website to learn more about our work in this area.


Going Global delivers a global forum for world leaders of international education to debate the role the international arena plays in global tertiary education policy. Visit the Going Global website to learn more about this programme.


Building upon the strength of UK science and our work in HE, we promote and support international collaborations which bring mutual benefit to the UK and partner countries, and promote economic and social prosperity. Learn more about our programmes.



We support educators in the UK and worldwide to work together to enrich the quality of education in schools and equip young people to live and work successfully in a global society.


The British Council is championing six core skills to help prepare young people for life and work in a globalised economy. By supporting teachers to develop their pedagogy in each of the core skills, we aim to give young people the skills and knowledge they need to prosper in a globalised society.


Using UK expertise, we offer programmes to help Brazilian schools assess and improve leadership among their teachers and staff.
