Speaking English in 2018? Small majority says yes

| Paul de Kuyper

Opinions are divided on UT’s intention to change the language of communication of this university to English. A small majority of the voters (52 percent) on a poll on this website agrees with this plan; 48 percent doesn’t like English to be the official language of communication.

400 website visitors voted on the poll.

According to the internationalization vision of the executive board, English will be the UT’s language of communication by 2018. This vision says that the UT should become more attractive for international students. Moreover, the UT will focus on curricula that prepare students for an international career, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

Wednesday 11th February the university council will discuss the internationalization vision with the executive board.
