Abstract

This SEDA Special takes an international theme, addressing the experiences of Chinese students studying higher education courses both in the UK and on collaborative programmes with British universities in China. Using the results of an innovative and impressive two-year project involving colleagues and students in China and in the UK, as well as current research, contributors explore methods aimed at helping Chinese students to cope with, and excel at, their studies in the UK.

In Part One British and Chinese contributors discuss the cultural impacts and implications for students and teachers, including advice on how both parties can adapt to each other.

In Part Two, Chinese academics discuss the principal challenges Chinese students face when interacting and learning in English and adapting to a new learning environment.
