British Council Romania
In 2013 we celebrated 75 years of cultural relations with Romania. Our country was in fact one of the first four countries in the world where the British Council set up an overseas office, along with Egypt, Portugal and Poland.
The anniversary programme reflected our efforts put into developing the education, arts, society and English areas in the past 75 years in Romania, but also our commitment to continue engaging with local partners in the respective fields.
We provide English language courses for everyone interested in learning or improving English, either is general English or for specific purposes (business, financial, legal etc.), courses to help preparation for English language certificates, and dedicated courses for the business environment. We also help teachers of English to develop their teaching skills offering training opportunities and access to global resources.
In Romania we administer English language certificates - IELTS and Cambridge, the APTIS test for organisations willing to establish the level of English of their employees or students, and also a wide range of professional and university examinations.
Through our work in arts, education and society, we are committed to help artists, cultural leaders, students, young leaders, teachers and institutions enhancing knowledge, skills, intercultural understanding and international exchanges.
