We build connections, understanding and trust between people in Ukraine and the United Kingdom through arts and culture, society development, education and the English language.
We work in two ways: directly with individuals to transform their lives, and with governments and partners to make a bigger difference for the longer term, creating benefit for millions of people all over the world.
We provide educational opportunities for Ukrainians in English for individual and professional development and administer examinations and tests from the UK.
In Higher Education, we build links between the UK and Ukrainian higher education systems in the areas of teaching and learning excellence, quality assurance and the internationalisation of higher education. We also work to develop the professional capacity of university leadership and contribute to student self-governance. Employing a range of programming, we worked with more than 80 universities during the year.
