Following recent directives from the Nigerian Government, our offices will be closed to the public temporarily effective from 24 March 2020.
However, the British Council staff will continue to perform duties that do not require contact with the public.
This is a precautionary measure to protect our customers and partners in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
See below status and update on exams and our programmes.
To protect the health of test-takers and test day personnel in light of Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as to comply with Nigerian Governments directives, British Council exams are suspended in Nigeria until further notice.
