Apply for The British Council IELTS Award


Creating opportunities that can change lives, we established the British Council IELTS Award in order to assist high-calibre individuals who have a strong motivation to develop their careers and who can demonstrate that they have the potential to contribute to society with their studies. The award will enable successful applicants to study at an undergraduate or postgraduate level at an institution of higher education anywhere in the world (in Germany or abroad), in an English-taught program that accepts IELTS as part of its admission requirements.

Benefit - The British Council IELTS Award is worth between £3,000 up to £10,000 depending on the tuition fees of the institution chosen by the winner and will go towards the cost of tuition fees of the individual's selected course. If the tuition fees of the successful candidate are below the maximum individual award fund of £10,000, the remaining funds may be allocated to support other runners-up.
