Welcome to ICLHE

The ICLHE is the association for expertise, networking and resources in the integration of content and language in higher education. The aim of the ICLHE association is to promote exchange of opinions, experiences, initiatives and research concerning the interface between content and language in higher education.

ICLHE is open to people in universities and institutes of higher education with an interest in content and language, including people concerned with teaching and learning through a second language, and teaching and learning through a national language to people of migrant or ethnic communities.

ICLHE also welcomes policymakers and researchers in international bodies and professional societies, publishers, representatives of national and international authorities, and others with an interest in the integration of content and language in higher education.

ICLHE AGM & Symposium 2018, Barcelona, October 18-19.

The Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona will host this year’s ICLHE Annual General Meeting, together with an exciting Symposium, entitled “Plurality and singularity: Multilingual policies and specific situated academic actions”.

The symposium explores the linguistic and cultural atmosphere of higher education institutions where the social environment may demand the use of two or more languages. This symposium wants to explore how multilingual policies can support universities in recognizing and developing their own specificities in a highly globalized world. How can universities make good use of the diversity of languages and cultures in their community to strengthen their uniqueness?

Further details will be posted on this website shortly. Save the date: 18-19 October 2018 and see you in Barcelona!

Symposium: Internationalisation of Universities and the National Language

On 4 May 2018, KU Leuven will organise this international symposium. During this symposium, we want to learn from testimonials from mainly European universities that are confronted with the (apparent) contradiction between internationalisation and the protection of their own language and culture. We should not expect one ultimate solution or a one-fits-all approach. What we do hope to find are guidelines on how to stay a leading international university without losing an important strength: the commitment to the own identity.
