Students sitting university exams

A UK higher education from home

Not everyone can travel abroad to pursue their ambition of a degree from a UK university. So we're here to help you earn that highly respected qualification, from Britain’s leading universities, without leaving the country. We make sure you have a simple and straightforward experience, from the moment you register for the university exam to the day you get your results. 

We’ll look after the whole process, from providing the exam venue and professionally trained supervisors to having your exams processed by the exam board. All you need to do is prepare for your exam and turn up on exam day. 

Exams will be held at the British Council offices, Abu Sinn Street, Khartoum.

How to register

It’s easy to register for your university exams. 

  1. First get in touch with your education institution and register your exam directly with them. The institution will decide on the exam dates and times and notify you directly of these.
  2. Once your exam place has been confirmed you should contact us and return the application form (see downloads section below). You need to do this at least one month before your exam.
