Politecnico di Milano creates a large debate in Italy with its decision to teach only in English
Recently, Politecnico di Milano in Italy has attempted to force all teaching at Master level in English. This has been stopped by some academics who went to different levels of administrative courts, and recently there was a prononciation of the Supreme Court. The matter is not settled yet, but you can find an account of this with various links here. The link includes an interesting article of the international panorama of Universities offering english courses even in non-native English speaking countries. Clearly, while top UK and US universities are the best choices, very often they are on the expensive side, so there is a market for low-tax offers like in North Europa, and indeed more and more, in Italy.
