Register for the British Council ELT Gulf Tour in May

A great opportunity for you to raise your institution's profile in the region and increase your market share, where face-to-face interaction and on the ground activities are highly valued.

Statistics show that there is a high demand for English Language courses in the Gulf region driven by the existence of several scholarship schemes and the wealth of the region. The majority of students need to enhance their English language level to improve their chances in obtaining admission from a UK university. The Gulf is a wealthy region with many wealthy families. Many students are able to fund themselves for academic and summer English language courses in the UK.
