British Council as SEAMEO Affiliate Member


The recent 45th SEAMEO Council Conference in Philippines has approved the British Council as a SEAMEO Affiliate Member.




The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. Their purpose is to build engagement and trust for the UK through the exchange of knowledge and ideas between people worldwide. With their strong networks in Thailand, they respond to Thailand’s ambition to become a leader in education and creativity through capacity building opportunities for the next generation of the country’s leaders. Each year they work with millions of Thais through a wide range of programmes and events including competitions, symposia, festivals, workshops, seminars and online communities.

The British Council has been building relationships between Thailand and the UK since 1938. To achieve the above goals, they work in partnership with many organisations in Thailand across the government, NGO, private and commercial sectors to create opportunities between people in the two countries.

They work predominantly in three major areas, the creative and knowledge economy, intercultural dialogue and climate change.
