British Council Netherlands

British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations with other countries. British Council’s approach to cultural relations is a broad one. It covers governance and human rights as well as the arts, science, education and inter-cultural dialogue - and it sets out deliberately to break down the boundaries between them.



British Council Netherlands delivers exams services and projects in the Benelux region, aiming to build long lasting relationships with individuals and organisations.

The Benelux team works primarily on multilateral projects across Western Europe and North America, under strategic themes described as Intercultural Dialogue and Creative and Knowledge Economy:
