Educational institutions have been given a strong emphasis in work on
micro-language planning (Baldauf, 2006; Chua & Baldauf, 2011; Liddicoat &
Baldauf, 2008). In universities, there has been considerable interest in
the role of languages in the work of universities, especially in recent
moves to the wider use English as a language of instruction and also in the
normalising of English as a language of research. In universities language
planning may deal with language decision-making related to teaching,
research and/or administration.

In the area of teaching, universities’ language planning may relate to
issues such as:

·         what languages are offered at different levels of learning to
either students specialising in languages or to not specialist learners

·         what languages are used as media of instruction

·         what language knowledge is required/expected of higher education
students (on admission, on graduation or in post-graduate study)

·         how (and which) language abilities are assessed

·         how the language needs of international students are catered for
by the institutions

In research, institutions may develop policies on:

·         languages of research work and research publication

·         developing and supporting the language abilities of researchers

·         providing research-related language services for academics or
graduate students

In their administration, institutions may plan:

·         which languages are used in the functioning of the institution
for internal or external communication

·         how majority and minority languages are represented in the

·         which language are used to deliver services or information to

·         how institution implement or respond to macro-level language
planning decisions

·         This issue of Current Issues in Language Planning aims to draw
develop an understanding of the range of language planning work that is
currently occurring in universities and the ways that languages, and indeed
questions of multilingualism and monolingualism are worked out in higher
