The British Council builds connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the English language. 

We help young people to gain the skills, confidence and connections they are looking for to realise their potential and to participate in strong and inclusive communities. We support them to learn English, to get a high-quality education and to gain internationally recognised qualifications. Our work in arts and culture stimulates creative expression and exchange and nurtures creative enterprise. 

We have been in Vietnam since 1993 and have offices and branches in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Every year, we reach out to thousands of students, educators, policymakers, academics, researchers, creatives and entrepreneurs in Vietnam.
