More European Universities offer programmes in English

In less than two years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of master’s programmes taught in English at universities in Europe. US-based Institute for International Education (IIE) recently released a report based on data from, which showed that a total of 6,407 graduate programmes taught fully or partially in English were available as of June this year – representing a 37.4% increase over the 4,664 programmes available just 18 months earlier and accounting for nearly a third of all master’s programmes offered in Europe.

The study’s authors attribute this growth to an interest among European institutions in meeting domestic demand for higher education in English, but also an expanded effort to attract students from around the world. They note as well a correlation between the prevalence of English-taught programmes across countries and such factors as whether or not institutions are allowed to charge differential tuitions for international students, government policies with respect to English-language instruction, institutional capacity to offer courses in English, and market demand.
