Who we are
The British Council is the UK’s leading international organisation for educational and cultural relations.
We work with our partners, both in Kazakhstan and in the UK, to showcase British excellence, innovation and creativity. We work for the benefit of the individual and for the mutual benefit of the UK and Kazakhstan.
In the UK the British Council is registered as a charity (not-for-profit-organisation) and operates independently from the UK government, from which we receive a grant-in-aid.
The British Council has 7,900 staff in offices, teaching centres, libraries and information and resource centres in 110 countries and territories worldwide.
Our patron is Her Majesty The Queen and our Vice-Patron is His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
We build engagement and trust for the UK through the exchange of knowledge and ideas between people worldwide.
British Council in Kazakhstan
The British Council is an integral and important part of the UK’s bilateral relationship with Kazakhstan. We have been working in Kazakhstan since 1994. We focus on developing English language skills, providing internationally recognized examinations, increasing the capacity of vocational and higher education institutions and contributing to UK and Kazakhstani partnerships and collaboration with arts.
