Academic Cooperation Association Conference: English Medium Instruction in Europe

Advisory Board member Lisa Fleury, Vassar Wesleyan Program in Paris, attended the Academic Cooperation Association's Conference on English Medium Instruction in Europe in Brussels: "A rare phenomenon at the turn of the century, English-medium instruction (EMI) has become a systemic feature in some European countries, particularly at the Master level. Even though the growth curve now shows signs of flattening, English-taught programmes have become immensely numerous and popular in the last 15 years. This ACA European Policy Seminar present[ed], amongst other things, the key findings of ACA's latest (2014) Europe-wide surveys of this form of tuition." Lisa has provided documentation, available in the member access section under Academics.
