We are here for you: Helping to keep our customers, partners and staff safe 

The health, safety, and well-being of all our staff, customers, partners, and the communities in which we operate remain our top priority. Over the past few months we have been working hard to put in place the necessary health and safety measures, and while we welcome the news that operations have resumed in Kampala, we are taking our time to reopen responsibly. Our offices are still closed to the public at this time. However, the British Council staff will continue to perform duties that do not require contact with the public as a precautionary measure to protect our customers and partners.


Following guidance from local health authorities and government, we have taken steps to resume testing in all our test centres. Booking is open for tests.
