This paper is a report of a study which aimed to understand the new and emerging global trend of EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction). EMI is becoming a rapidly growing global phenomenon, although provision is outpacing empirical research. This research used questionnaires with students and staff at universities in Japan and China and interviews with students, content staff and EAP instructors to understand how EMI is approached; the main driving forces behind this policy; and staff and student attitudes towards this policy in these contexts.
