The British Council in Oman

The British Council has been working in Oman since 1972 to develop the skills of young Omanis, support educational reform, and provide access to the UK's language, education and culture. Each year we provide English language training to over 6,000 people and enable over 16,000 people to achieve their goals by gaining a UK qualification.
