English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI)

To help students and staff achieve their full potential, universities increasingly need to deliver educational programmes in English.

English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) has never been more important for universities, as most academic research is now published in English and students' dissertations and research are also carried out in English.

Case Studies - Teacher Training


In partnership with AIU, BSC delivered 50 two week face-to-face teacher training courses to over 1,000 subject teachers across 7 cities in Kazakhstan.

Case Studies - Teacher Training


NIS is a network of schools for exceptional students throughout Kazakhstan. BSC delivered a modular blended Teacher Training course to 160 NIS secondary teachers.

The aim was to increase capacity by training CLIL trainers who, later, would support and train other internal CLIL secondary teachers.

Teacher Training

We can help both qualified and trainee teachers keep their language skills up to scratch, prepare for teacher training courses and maximise their potential.

As English is now the language of international research, having more teachers speak English can increase the amount of English-language research published, raising your university's position in rankings.

This in turn will attract more students, both domestic and international, as they search for the courses they wish to study delivered in English.

Extracurricular Lessons

We can also offer extracurricular lessons to help students prepare for language exams such as IELTS. With online lessons students can study wherever they choose.

Students who enrol on an EMI course expect a level of supporting lessons to ensure they have the English language skills necessary to complete their course.

BSC can help universities to deliver these lessons and secure the best results possible for their students.
