New English Editing Business Launched as English becomes the Global Language of Education
(PRWEB) October 10, 2012
English is becoming the global language of education. The pressure to learn English is intense: scholars face pressure to publish in English to reach the widest possible audience, universities are competing to attract the best international students and faculty; and students want to study an English language degree to be competitive in a globalized, English friendly job market.
Universities with global ambitions have no choice but to adopt English as the language of tuition. Italys leading university, for example, recently announced that it is switching all its degree courses to English rather than Italian. The globalization of English was the trigger.
"We strongly believe our classes should be international classes - and the only way to have international classes is to use the English language," says Politecnico di Milanos rector, Giovanni Azzone. "Universities are in a more competitive world, if you want to stay with the other global universities - you have no other choice".
