Visiting & Studying

Past Visits

"The LfL Network is a vital approach because ideas, cultures and knowledge can travel through it. I met new people from different disciplines and backgrounds, including from England, Kazakhstan, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Egypt and Palestine...
We talked and discussed issues and challenges in education in general and in our countries in particular. The University of Cambridge offered an open environment for distinctive people and innovative work."
