Nowadays English is becoming a medium of teaching other subjects in universities all over the world. It can result in significant difficulties if a student is not prepared for such courses. the strategies for teaching subjects through EMI had not been analyzed to full extent. The purpose of the present work was to set up the basic principles of successful preparation of students to their further studies in English. An ESP course for Public Administration students aimed at helping students to integrate into the international academic community was designed. The task required target situation and curriculum analyses, detailed description of students’ needs, materials selection and a syllabus design. The methodology applied is based on the student-centered model where language teaching runs parallel to the content and centers its attention on the students. The work resulted in an ESP course for public managers with a special emphasis on administration in public sphere. The article gives and shares practical examples of assignments and demonstrates how the approach increases efficiency in learning English and helps develop and improve the skills which will help students in succeeding in EMI. The experience, however, can be easily extended to students of any specialization.
