English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) aims to teach knowledge from a variety of different professional fields and build up the bilingual teaching/learning environment at NTNU to elevate the competitiveness of international higher education. This project aims to assist the university to promote teaching in English, develop support systems for instructors teaching in English, introduce international instructors with experiences of teaching in English abroad, and building environments for full English -learning.
