The priority of the British Council continues to be the health and safety of our students, exam candidates, staff and those in our wider community. 

It is important for us to keep you updated on any changes to our activity.

Please be informed that:


Our English courses for adults and young learners are online.


  • Following the Dpcm of 15/01/21, exam sessions in red regions will be cancelled up to and including 5/03/21. Therefore, the British Council will communicate the cancellation of sessions weekly, on Saturday, following the publication, on Friday, of the list of regions included in the red zone. Sessions taking place within primary or lower secondary schools (scuole medie) and aimed at primary and first year lower secondary school students are an exception to the red zone. Unless further and more restrictive measures are taken by the competent authorities, all sessions held in the yellow and orange zones are confirmed until the 5/03/21.
  • To book an exam, please check dates here: IELTS / Cambridge English Qualifications
