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. Following the Government of Uganda directives, we have suspended all exams scheduled for the month of August. Our offices remain 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 the government, we have suspended all IELTS tests for the month of August until further notice.
