ACA European Policy Seminar: 4th Dec, Brussels

English-medium instruction (EMI) has become a systemic feature in many European countries, particularly at the Master level. Even though the growth curve now shows signs of flattening, the number of English-taught programmes (ETPs) in Europe has seen a very steep rise in the last 15 years. This ACA European Policy Seminar will present, amongst other things, the key findings of ACA’s latest (2014) Europe-wide surveys of this form of tuition. There are some surprises in store.

But this is only one item on the seminar’s agenda: In an opening presentation, Adrian Veale of the European Commission will tackle the difficult question which language – or languages – Europe’s new global outreach strategy (“Europe in the world”) should use to attract the world’s young talents to our continent’s universities and colleges.
