This research aimed to describe the use of EMI in PGMIPA-U program in Jambi University in the academic Year 2016 / 2017 and identify students’ perception in learning mathematics and science using English as medium of instruction. In conducting this research, the data were collected from 8 students of PGMIPA-U program. Descriptive qualitative was chosen as the research design in which interview and classroom observation were the instruments of this research. Interview was employed to know the students’ perception about EMI and Classroom observation was also carried out to know how EMI in PGMIPA-U program was used. The result of this study showed that the EMI was implemented fully in some courses and partially in some other courses. Fully means using no native language at all and partially means use 50% or less of the course taught in English. The study also revealed that almost all students did not understand about the lesson if the lecturers used full EMI in the classroom. When the lecturer used partial EMI the students slightly understand about the materials. It is also reflected from classroom observation at that time the lecturer used EMI in the classroom from the beginning until the end of the class.
