Updated: 13 January

In accordance with government guidelines and to guarantee the health, safety and well-being of all our customers, colleagues and the communities in which we operate, the British Council has suspended all Cambridge exams until 21 February 2021 inclusive. 

Our IELTS delivery partner, BLTC, is open for examinations and delivering Computer Delivered IELTS. Please refer to BLTC for further information.

Should we have to reschedule a Cambridge exam, due to following the RIVM guidelines and new regulations announced 12 January 2021, we will do this free of charge. We are very flexible as we have more exam dates - outside the advertised ones – available; please contact your exam centre for more details.

We are continuously monitoring the guidelines. If the situation changes, we will adapt our approach and inform any candidates who are affected. Please note our offices are closed, but you can still contact us at exams@britishcouncil.nl or via phone: T +31 (0)20 550 6060 (Monday to Friday, 10:00 – 12:00 and 14:00 – 16:00)

We will make every effort to get back to you promptly, but response time might be longer than usual due to the circumstances. We are grateful for your patience and understanding and will be in touch as soon as possible. 

Best wishes,

British Council Netherlands
