“I would say Andrew Carvajal and Chantal Desloges' course on study permits is the most informative and helpful CPD course I have taken so far. The course provided not only tons of information, but also answers to many questions that were confusing to me before. I was very impressed by the instructors’ professionalism and profound knowledge and will be recommending LPEN’s course to my colleagues.   .”
