Can you change school for British Council?

I've just received my placement for British Council and i hate it - it's exactly the opposite of what I wanted, it's in a really northern remote place and I know i'm not going to like it. Is it possible to get placed elsewhere?

    I think I've heard of people swapping their placements before but I'm not 100%. Also don't give up on your school just yet - I was in a hugely remote area and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, it makes it very easy to get to know people and settle in :)

    Unless you have a genuine reason beyond not liking it, then no.  The British Council make it clear that whilst they take your preferences into account you're given the placement you're given and that's it.
