This study focuses on the attitudes of university faculty towards using English as a medium of instruction in universities in Turkey. 101 university faculty members with a variety of academic titles and ranks participated in the study. Half of the participants were faculty members from an English medium university, and the other half were faculty members from two different Turkish medium universities. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire which consisted of Likert-type items inquiring about: the participants’ general attitudes towards English and English medium instruction; their views regarding the effects of English medium instruction on course efficiency; and their socio-cultural and resource-access related concerns about English medium instruction. An open-ended question at the end of the questionnaire asked the participants to provide additional comments or explanations for their responses. The responses of faculty members from the English medium university were compared with those from the Turkish medium universities.
