Find a UK education agent

There are education agents, counsellors and advisors who can help you to apply for a course at a university, college or school in the UK.

They can help you choose an institution and make your application, and they might also be able to advise you on topics such as visas, accommodation, travel and more.

You don’t have to use an agent or advisor to apply to study in the UK, but if you would like to find one, then you can search our database of British Council trained agents.
