    Firstly, there are many British accents. If you mean RP (the 'standard' one), you could learn it, but it would require a lot of exposure, which could be done over the internet.

    Listen to english radio; the BBC world service is the 'standard' english accent, known as 'the Queen's English'.
    you can get it on the internet as well as on a radio.
