Application and Registration

Who can attend the IALC Workshop?

Study travel agencies
We welcome applications from active language travel and study abroad agencies - large or small companies, established and new businesses. With limited places at the IALC Workshop, we review applications individually, based on productivity, market and potential, with the aim of bringing a wide and balanced range of agencies to meet our member schools.

We host one person per agency - though you may register additional delegates at the standard fee. To make the most of the IALC Workshop, we recommend that your delegate has a senior position or is in charge of selecting language programmes at your agency. The minimum age for participation is 16 years. 16-year-olds pay the full delegate rate.

If you are an established agency, the more students you have sent recently to IALC schools, the better your chance of being accepted. You can search and contact IALC schools using our course finder.

The educators at our Workshop are the IALC-accredited language centres from 22 countries around the world. With a fantastic range of destinations, language centres and language programmes for all ages and needs, the IALC Workshop is the best specialist language travel workshop in the industry!

Stands are available at the IALC Workshop for service providers wishing to meet Agents, Educators or other Exhibitors. Find out more about exhibiting, sponsoring and advertising.
