English Language Standards in Higher Education has been written in a context in which the English language skills of students are increasingly under the spotlight due to the monumental impact of globalisation on the higher education sector. The underpinning tenets of the book are that in all contexts in which English is the medium of instruction English language acquisition is central to academic success, and that this requires continuous and systematic development throughout the course of study. The authors are unwavering in this conviction and offer a variety of constructive approaches, acknowledging that there is no `one-size-fits-all' approach to developing English language proficiency in higher education.

This book synthesises current research in English language standards to offer new approaches to addressing a growing challenge for those leading and teaching in higher education institutions around the world.

A concise, accessible book, English Language Standards in Higher Education provides both a comprehensive analysis of English language challenges in higher education and more importantly offers a framework for institutional and pedagogical planning, with practical advice and suggestions.

The focus of this book and the evidence-based suggestions it provides will strongly resonate in countries where English is the main language of communication, as well as in countries where English is used as the medium of instruction in higher education.
