British Council Wales

British Council Wales brings the best of international education and arts to Wales and helps Welsh students, teachers, artists and others connect professionally with people around the world. We enrich people’s lives here in Wales and abroad by encouraging and supporting this interplay of ideas, skills and experiences.

We work with artists across the world to create a meaningful impact on Wales.
By engaging with the best of Welsh creative talent we develop innovative and high quality events. We also collaborate with cultural institutions from around the world to bring artists closer to Wales.

We do this by:

  • developing new partnerships and relationships with key organisations
  • ensuring the projects we work on have ambition, scale and longevity
  • focusing on work that demonstrates excellence and innovation
  • discovering new and emerging talent in Wales
  • supporting projects which offer value for money

Our work in education covers schools, colleges and universities. We aim to help Welsh people and organisations develop the skills they need to succeed internationally, developing a nation that can successfully work with other countries and cultures. The focus of our work is to support the internationalisation of Welsh universities, further education colleges and schools, sharing Wales’ expertise with the world and facilitating the world coming to Wales to provide positive international experiences for institutions, staff, students and pupils.
