The British Council is committed to creating more opportunities for more students throughout Oman through our work in English, education and Arts This has never been more important and the way we work needs to change to engage with and meet the needs of students and clients today.  

After careful analysis and consultation, we have decided to discontinue our face-to-face English language courses at the Teaching Centre in Muscat, in October 2022. This is a big decision, with many factors behind it. Primarily, we are dealing with an extremely challenging business environment due to the impact of Covid-19.  

The British Council is not closing 

We are continuing all our exams and UK qualifications provision, including IELTS and Cambridge English.  The British Council’s work in arts, and education in Oman will continue - the only change is related to provision of public English courses.
