RMF: Scholarship in English for young adults at the British Council
With the RMF’s programme RMF: Scholarship in English for young adults at the British Council, the Ramon Molinas Foundation encourages high-achieving, motivated university students that also come from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds to learn or improve on their English. The young people that participate in the programme come from organisations that work in the field of social action.
Throughout the academic year 2017-2018, the students awarded the BAC Scholarships from BarcelonActua and connected to the Pare Manel Foundation and to the Associació Educativa Itaca will take part in a personalised programme, depending on their academic needs, in the British Council’s training centre in Barcelona.
The university students participating in the RMF: Scholarship in English for young adults at the British Council will develop their communication skills in English and will have access to the programme of activities, the library and the online learning materials which the British organisation makes available to all its students.
About the British Council
The British Council generates cultural opportunities in more than 100 countries, through their work in the fields of education, society, art, science, teaching and certification of English, connecting 128 million people worldwide.
In Spain, their work started 77 years ago. Last year in 2016, 30,000 students learned English with the organisation and 57,000 received a certificate in English. 2,000 families chose the bicultural and bilingual British Council School.
What drives the British Council is better English teaching and increasing their reach. For this reason, it collaborates with governments, professors and both Spanish and British educational institutions to promote the exchange of students between Spain and the United Kingdom.
As well as committing to cultural opportunities, the British Council works to highlight the work of British scientists and artists. Last year, the organisation participated in more than 50 events to bring these figures to the Spanish public eye.
