News Update: May 2016 

The British Council have not yet formulated their plan for grants for exchange trips to and from Malawi.

We are told to revisit their website in June. It would appear that up to 2018 there are no funded trips from Malawi to the UK. Sub-Saharan Africa was left out of the original countries eligible.

The current situation looks difficult for funded trips in the foreseeable future.

This page will be updated in June 2016, once we have heard some more information.

Kind Regards
