The British Council connects the UK and South Africa working towards enriching education, promoting global citizenship and building international trust and understanding. We foster dialogue and international partnerships between higher education institutions and organisations and help students who want to study abroad.

Through higher education, young South Africans can gain a wider understanding of both their country and the world around them.  

To facilitate these connections, the British Council in South Africa are hosting 12 UK universities and colleges who will be participating in the Education UK South Africa 2016 Tour.

The Education UK Tour will be in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 26 January at the Sandton Convention Centre and in Cape Town on Thursday, 28 January at the Belmont Square Conference Centre. The exhibition will be open to the public from 16:00 – 19:30 on both days.

Students will have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with representatives from the various UK institutions to find out more about undergraduate and postgraduate studies, available courses and funding opportunities.
