Most existing studies on excellence programmes focus primarily on the characteristics of students and/or programmes. However, little is known about the effects of participation in excellence programmes on cognitive and non-cognitive outcome measures.

Conceição, Manuel Célio – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
In the context of education for the global world, internationalization is a strategy and a goal of higher education (HE). In many cases, the conditions for carrying out internationalization are neglected in detriment of its economic and financial impact. The definition of appropriate language policies and their relation to the organization and…

Chardenet, Patrick; Ferreira-Meyers, Karen – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
In the process of internationalization of universities, the articulation between local and global contexts depends on various factors including that of linguistic capital, that is to say, the sum of resources and language skills that allow stakeholders, teachers, researchers and students to participate in different levels of knowledge flows. To…

Yanaprasart, Patchareerat – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Academic globalisation and the internationalisation of scientific knowledge currently place higher education between two forces: global competitiveness and innovation on the one hand, local attractiveness and diversity on the other. In view of this double requirement, this paper aims to examine language policy and analyse its impact on language…

Gajo, Laurent; Berthoud, Anne-Claude – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
This article sets out from the observation that internationalization and contextualization of scientific knowledge increasingly appear to be in conflict, raising the question of the part played by language in the construction, transmission and dissemination of such knowledge. We will start by emphasizing the importance of considering language not…

In this contribution, the self-reported linguistic practices of researchers engaged in an international research project are analysed and discussed. These researchers constitute a community of practice of intercomprehension, using mostly romance languages to communicate and, at the same time, also researching the phenomena. The data was collected…
