The UK is the second most popular destination in the world for international study. In 2019-20, over 500,000 international students chose to study here. The UK also has an unparalleled range of universities and higher education colleges – from large multi-faculty universities through to small specialist institutions and performance arts colleges.

The British Council provides a wide range of information to support the important relationships between students, education agents, counsellors and UK education providers. The British Council want to encourage UK education providers to work closely with well-trained, ethical agents who in turn will support the journeys of many thousands of international students.

The following resources have been developed to help agents and institutions to deliver a high-quality international student experience.
