We will be relaunching the delivery of exams at the British Council as of the 16 April. Candidates whose exams were suspended will be notified through email about the new test dates. New exams dates for all other candidates will be announced in the second half of April. Thank you for your understanding and patience.


The British Council’s priority is always to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers, employees, and the communities in which we operate. Find out more about our additional health and safety measures. 

For this reason, the following changes have taken place in our Budapest office:

  • all face-to-face customer service activities have been temporarily suspended; the office remains closed to the public, we welcome individuals with an appointment. You can reach us through e-mail or telephone (please click here for contact details).
  • face-to-face English language courses for young learners and adults have been temporarily suspended and will continue in our Virtual Classrooms. Online classes will include the same number of hours as face-to-face classes (please click here for our English courses).
  • Our exams are held in small groups in accordance with strict hygiene regulations (please click here for our Exams).
  • all the cultural events are now taking place online or have been postponed to a later date (please click here for our events and programmes).

All the latest information about exams, teaching and programmes will be available on our website.
