Abstract:

The monumental impact of globalisation on the higher education sector has placed the English language skills of tertiary students firmly under the spotlight. English Language Standards in Higher Education addresses the inherent issues faced by a growing band of transnational students, the lecturers across all disciplines who are charged with delivering the courses, and the universities in both English-speaking nations and those where English is the primary medium of instruction. The underpinning tenets of this pivotal title are that English language acquisition is central to academic success, and that this requires continuous and systematic development throughout the course of study.
