The British Council is the United Kingdom’s organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We greatly value our mutually beneficial relationship with the Romanian Ministry of Education and have been working together for over two decades to support educational and cultural exchange between Romania and the UK, as well as to promote and strengthen reform in key educational areas.
The British Council in Romania continues to be an authorised Cambridge Assessment English examination centre. Cambridge Assessment English examinations which are held with the support of the British Council are recognised and accepted in accordance with Order MENCS no. 5905/2016. We deliver English language examinations to the highest international standards.
A small number of specific agreements have lapsed between the British Council in Romania and the Romanian Ministry of Education, among which one relating to the development of the National English Language Baccalaureate Examination and the National English Language Olympiad. However, such agreements do not entirely cover our overarching status in Romania.
We are currently in discussion with the Ministry of Education regarding the renewal of a Memorandum of Understanding between our two institutions, and we are hopeful that this will be finalised and signed in the near future. This agreement however does not change the status of British Council Romania as an authorised Cambridge Assessment English examination centre or the recognition of its certificates.
The British Council and the Ministry of Education work together on several initiatives to support mutual understanding between the UK and Romania, and we look forward to developing our collaboration with the Ministry of Education into the future.
