As a reflection of our European geographical situation, we recommend the use of British English in most contexts, particularly for institutional documents. However, many university texts may be addressed specifically to American readers or may be for or from an academic ambit in which American English is more usual. In such cases, use common sense and discretion in deciding which variant is more suitable.

We strongly recommend, however, that only one variant of English be used within a single text or related series of texts, for reasons of coherence.
