We are here for you

The global Covid-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different ways and we understand that these are uncertain times.

At the British Council, the health, safety and well-being of all our staff, customers, partners and the communities in which we operate is a top our priority. We support and cooperate with all local government agencies by putting all necessary measures in place to ensure the continued well-being of all with whom we engage at work, and as responsible corporate citizens of the world.

The British Council in Singapore has temporarily paused some of our activities in response to guidance from the Singapore government. Where possible, we are continuing some of our activities using appropriate health and safety protocols.

We are exploring how we can digitise our programmes and find possibilities for connecting people online. Through new approaches to our work, we will endeavour to continue to provide cultural and educational opportunities to connect.

You can find the latest information on our activities below:
