IALC Research Report 2021​​​​​​​ - The Impact of COVID-19 on the Student Experience

Surveying past and present IALC language schools students worldwide.

Launched by IALC

The IALC Research Report 2021 – The Impact of COVID-19 on the IALC Student Experience was commissioned by the IALC Board in May 2020.  The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of the pandemic on IALC students and to serve as a resource for all international language schools, study travel agencies and the wider industry. 

The report draws its data, observations, analysis, suggestions and conclusions from research conducted between 17 August 2020 – 9 October 2020.  1565 students who had studied at IALC schools responded.

This report continues and builds on the earlier analysis of the IALC research Reports on the student experience that was started by IALC in 2017 but now seen through the lens of the COVID-19 crisis.

It is hoped that the key findings of this Research Report will help schools and agents to realise the impact of COVID-19 on the student experience and adapt to prepare for the future.
