Message from the Director

Welcome to British Council Philippines. 

As the UK’s organisation for cultural relations, our aim is to build trust and understanding between the Philippines and the United Kingdom. 

Around the world, the British Council’s high profile work in English, the arts, education and society helps hundreds of millions of people to learn about and experience creativity and excellence from the UK. Millions of talented people of all ages – but particularly younger people – engage face-to-face and online with us, developing new skills, experiencing life and study in the UK, and obtaining UK qualifications. 

We were first established in the Philippines in 1978, and today we are active throughout the country.

 Please use this site to find out more about our work in the Philippines and what we can offer. We would love to hear from you – whether you are interested in partnering with us, taking one of our courses or exams, or learning how we can support you or your organisation.


Nicholas Thomas
Director, British Council Philippines
