Professor Andrew Linn, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Head of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Westminster, submitted a letter to the Times Higher Education, commenting on the challenges of English-taught courses in places where English is not the national language.

Calling on University leaders to be aware of the impact English-taught courses have on students and staff, Professor Linn said: “English marginalises those who lack sufficient language skills.”

Research showed these courses required extra effort from all parts involved. Referring to other reports of language problems from lecturers themselves, he concluded: “English-taught degrees should not be seen as a cash cow; they also have their price.”
