The Study UK campaign (, delivered in partnership with the GREAT Britain campaign, is designed to promote the best of British education overseas, so that the United Kingdom is the first choice for the brightest and best students in the world. International education is a highly competitive market (with our main competitors being USA, Canada and Australia) and the UK remains the second most popular Higher Education (HE) destination with 196,000 new students enrolling with British universities per year.

Our social media presence is being managed by an external agency, including creation of content, posting, monitoring and reporting, and this contract with the current agency expires on 14 August 2018. The British Council is now looking for an agency to take on our social media management activities in this field.
