International EMI Courses: In your country

OXFORD EMI TRAINING's International courses.

Oxford EMI's 'International' courses are organised at universities around the world. 

The Oxford EMI team is experienced in training lecturers, teachers and staff in many different countries; Brazil, Turkey, Japan, Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, France, Spain, Germany, Austria ... Our team comes to you.

EMI for University Lecturers Course

The EMI for University Lecturers (International course) is a 1-week course held in many countries.

This course is for academics, lecturers and supervisors in Higher Education who teach their subject in English. Participants teach academic disciplines such as Business, Finance, Engineering, Sciences, Humanities. They teach Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral students.

Participants need to be able to participate in English but their English can be 'global' English. It doesn't need to be perfect.

The aim of this course is to give participants the tools to deal with the challenges of teaching and learning through a foreign language. Participants learn the teaching techniques needed to teach an international class. These techniques make lectures more comprehensible, interactive and motivating for international and home students.

Participants practise teaching a mini session using the new techniques they have learnt and receive feedback from the Oxford trainers.

Developing In-house EMI Support

Experienced Teacher Educators and English Teachers can join our Oxford EMI courses. Participants learn about EMI issues, research into EMI, models for implementing EMI, and explore ways of creating their own in-house support for EMI in their institutions.

Organisation of International EMI courses

When internationalising, HEIs find that working together, exchanging ideas and best practice can be beneficial to all the institutions in a region or country.

These professional development courses can be organised for a national or regional group of HEIs. For example, leading international universities such as ICU in Tokyo, Japan, work with Oxford EMI to host courses for participants from all over Japan. L'Université de Montpellier in France hosts for Universities, IUT and Grandes Ecoles in their region.

Courses can also be organised for a group of participants from the same university.

If your institution would like to discuss hosting a course please contact us.

The hosting institution organises 

  • A group of 12-30 participants from various disciplines.
  • Administration to support the participants’ arrival at the host university.
  • A large classroom.
