Anggia Utami Dewi, Lia Maulia Indrayani

Abstract

One policy taken in internationalization of higher education in non-English speaking countries is the use of English as medium of instruction. The goal of building World-Class University is believed to be hand-in-hand with the presence of internationalized programs including its curriculum, courses, instructors and students. In Indonesia, even though there has been the conduct of international classes in universities for several years, the specific policy of English Medium Instruction (EMI) is absence. The current strategy of internationalization seems to focus on the advancement and intensification of research and publication. Through a qualitative approach of methodology, this paper discusses the policy of English Medium Instruction in internationalization of Indonesian higher education. The assessment will be on the debate between possibility and reality of the policy implementation, in the context of internationalization strategy. In the end, this paper summarizes whether the EMI policy derives more benefits or shortfalls for the internationalization of Indonesian higher education.
