The database of UK certified agents and counsellors lists all the agent and counsellors who have successfully passed the assessments and agreed to the Code of Conduct.

This enables both education providers and students to check their chosen agent is certified. The British Council only certifies agents for their knowledge and awareness of the UK as a study destination. The British Council does not regulate, accredit or endorse agents. The fully searchable database can be filtered by country, city, agency or school name.  

UK Education providers should seek appropriate legal advice on contracts. International students should follow the student guide. Education agents on this database receive a certificate to evidence that they have completed the course but are not permitted to use the British Council Logo. Agents using the British Council logo will be breaking the Code of Conduct and removed from the database.
