Press Release -  13 March 2017



The British Council – proud co-owner of IELTS – has been administering the test in Greece and globally for over thirty years,

and running the British Council IELTS Award for the third consecutive year. 


Creating opportunities that can change lives, the British Council Greece launched the British Council IELTS Award 

in order to assist 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 2017–18 academic year (i.e. starting August 2017 onwards) and will be paid directly to the institution.


The application deadline for the British Council IELTS Award 2017 is 2 June 2017.
