Students around the world are also attending classes which prepare them for university admissions tests, such as IELTS, Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), and the Pearson Test of Academic English. These global language exams can only be reliable if they reduce the complexities of academic communication to something that can be administered and consistently measured for large numbers of candidates. This led, in fact, IELTS to abandon subject-specific exam modules in favour of generic tests (Davies, 2008).

The advantage of a near-universal academic lingua franca must be seen against the loss of linguistic diversity and the difficulties for students and academics required to study and publish in a foreign language.

They also bring up the linkage between our conceptualization of EAP and the extent to which it is marginalized institutionally and forced into the ‘butler’s stance’. EAP may be most well developed at the level of research students, partly because at this level English has become a necessity across the globe, and because there are very large communities of prestigious EAL users at Anglophone universities. Needs are clear and present but steadily changing and, as Feak shows, genre-based courses have been developed which tackle new issues such as interdisciplinary discourse practices and the increasing need to communicate with non-experts.
