Universities around the world are seeking to become more competitive in the face of increasingly fierce domestic and global higher education markets. As a result, they are increasing and diversifying their international activities. Japanese universities are no exception and are in the midst of a rapid growth in English-medium instruction (EMI).

Almost 40% of Japanese universities now have non-language classes taught in English. These classes serve a mix of international and domestic students and there is a great deal of variation in the implementation. This panel introduces a new book that aims to clarify why policies concerning EMI are in place, how EMI is being implemented, what challenges are being addressed and what the impacts of EMI may be for Japan and its students. Authors will discuss their research and look forward to an engaging discussion on EMI and the internationalization of higher education.
