The 2022 IALC Workshop in Berlin
The 2022 IALC Workshop in Berlin was a wonderful event, not least because it had been our first physical workshop since 2019 and it was so great to meet people in-person again. With over 200 schools and agents attending it was fantastic to see the enthusiasm for the event as well as such optimism for the future. You can read the full workshop report in the online Study Travel Magazine and see the official photos here.
