English taught programmes (ETPs) have grown massively over the last 15 years in Europe. But this growth has impacted institutions and higher education systems in both positive and negative ways. This session will highlight many of the benefits associated with the growth of ETPs, while outlining some of the associated risks, trends and implications that European higher institutions should consider. It does so by providing a deep analysis of specific institutional examples within the EU.
