The GREAT campaign
The British Council is supporting the GREAT campaign by promoting the UK as a destination of study. Visit our Education UK website to find out more.
We are also promoting Britain to learners and teachers of English worldwide. On our Learning English website you can find out what is great about Britain and share your opinions. Our series of twelve videos shows different aspects of the best of Britain and there are lots of exercises to help improve English skills. The videos are lively and fast-moving - best for those already confident in English.
Our Teaching English website shows why Britain is a great place to visit, study and work. Lesson plans, worksheets and posters about Britain can be downloaded to use with students.
The GREAT campaign was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron in New York on 21 September 2011 and officially launched in February 2012. The campaign aims to support the marketing and public diplomacy efforts of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), Visit Britain, the Foreign Office and the British Council overseas.
