How to start studying at the British Council?

Step 1 - Take the level test

  • It costs $70.000 COP. This cost is not refundable.
  • You can pay for the course with your Visa or MasterCard credit card and debit card. For security reasons, we do not accept cash payments.
  • Taking the level test does not guarantee a space in our courses at your preferred time. This depends on the availability of classes and schedules for your level.
