Get there with the British Council – Apply for the IELTS Award 2018


The British Council – proud co-owner of IELTS – has been administering the test in Greece and globally for over a quarter of a century, and is running the British Council IELTS Award for the fourth consecutive year.

The award assists a high calibre individual who has a strong motivation to develop their career and who can demonstrate that they have the potential to contribute to society with their studies.

The award will enable the successful applicant to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level at an institution of higher education in Greece or abroad, or at a college or other provider of post-secondary education or vocational training in Greece, that accepts IELTS as part of its admission requirements.

The award is worth up to a maximum of £10,000 depending on the tuition fees of the institution attended by the winner and will go towards the cost of tuition fees of the individual's selected course. The award applies only to courses in the 2018–19 academic year (i.e. starting August 2018 onwards) and will be paid directly to the institution.

The successful applicant will demonstrate a commitment to networking within the IELTS community and sharing their experience with other IELTS candidates.
