To support efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Hong Kong, please find outlined below the measures the British Council in Hong Kong is taking.

We apologise for any inconvenience that these may cause, but please be assured that the health, safety and well-being of our customers, staff and the community in which we operate is our top priority.

From Thursday 2 April, computer-delivered IELTS tests will run at the British Council in Admiralty and theDesk, with restrictions in place that meet the current Hong Kong government regulations on gatherings and social distancing (no more than four people per test, including the invigilator, and at a distance of 1.5m).

Our TST centre is open for enquiries and placement tests, with restrictions in place that meet the current regulations. Please see here for current opening times.

Our online English classes continue.

Our in-centre teaching and other exams are temporarily suspended in Hong Kong.

All testing is currently suspended in Macau.
