What is Addvantage?

Addvantage is the British Council’s examinations member scheme for schools, language centres, universities and institutions who register candidates with us each year. It’s our way of saying thank you and to welcome our new customers.

How do I become an Addvantage member?

You can become a member of Addvantage if your language centre, school, university or institution registers candidates with us for Cambridge English exams and IELTS

How does Addvantage work?

Addvantage is available to our current clients and to language centres, schools and institutions who have not collaborated with us before or have not worked with us for a number of years.

To start with, we invite you to join our Addvantage Starter scheme - it will give you the framework and the marketing tools to launch our cooperation. 

After first registrations you will qualify for a tier depending on the number of exams you register with us per year.  As you move up the tiers you will enjoy greater benefits as a thank you for you continuing to choose British Council as your exams.

What do people say about us?

„Being a language school we appreciate the cooperation with the British Council. We treat membership in the programme as something really prestigious. The British Council is a reliable institution, recognized all over the world and for us so far a trustworthy partner to cooperate with in the area of international language examinations.”

“Materials, especially in the form of posters, really draw student and visitors’ attention. They raise the level of trust in a school’s performance. Information about the exams in the form of leaflets is sometimes the only source of reliable information about the importance of British examinations for the development of young people’s professional career, especially in the conditions of smaller towns.”
