Abstract: The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) has strongly influenced the implementation of English as Medium of Instruction (EMI) at European universities. Increasingly, the University of Alicante (UA) is introducing High Academic Achievement (ARA) groups among their degrees. ARA groups are addressed to strengthen the potential of the most outstanding students from the beginning of their university studies by allowing them to take at least 50% of their basic credits in English. Since 2011, ARA group is available for Law studies. As the first class in Law’s ARA group has been graduated, the aim of this poster is to present the results reached during the last four years for the benefit of students and lecturers that were involved in EMI through the ARA group. With this in mind, it will be taken into account different goals that are pretended to reach by means of EMI, such as internationalization, exchange of students, teacher mobility or professional opportunities.
