Degrees offered entirely in English at five universities in Valencia region

UNIVERSITY degrees taught, assessed and examined entirely in English are due to be introduced gradually in the Comunidad Valenciana from the start of the next academic year.

Regional education authorities say it is the 'ideal opportunity' for students to become fluent in English, both in terms of speaking and written expression, and technical knowledge of their chosen subject matter.

The move is aimed at making graduates more employable.

Members of the regional government's education department are currently examining each syllabus for all degrees offered by universities in the Comunidad Valenciana in order to adapt them to suit their plans.

These include the Jaume I University in Castellón; Valencia University; Alicante University; Valencia Polytechnic College and the Miguel Hernández University in Elche (Alicante).

For the academic year 2010-2011, students considered to be high achievers were selected to complete part or all of their degrees in English.

They had to have a level of the language equivalent to the European B2 stage, or intermediate level.

A total of 23 degree subjects in the five universities in the region are offered in English to these high achievers.
