Board confirms parallel-language budget

Indirect confirmation of parallel-language policy with budget approval to CIP

English-language teaching, certification and research is one step closer to becoming a permanent part of the University of Copenhagen.

This has been made clear after the Board of the University met today Tuesday, and confirmed the budget for the Centre for Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use (CIP) through 2013.

The board confirmed a continuation of the centre on a budget of approximately DKK 4m for 2013 at the meeting.

Rector: Should be permanent

Rector Ralf Hemmingsen made the recommendation that the centre be made a permanent operating unit of the University of Copenhagen after the next budget year.

CIP does courses for academic English and certifies professors and lecturers to teach the English-language COME Master’s programmes. It also does research into parallel-language in general.

The CIP, first established in 2008 also regularly holds seminars with top international speakers.
