About this book

What happens when East travels West? In today’s increasingly globalized world, these collisions are becoming increasingly common in universities– especially due to the growth of migratory students . As the largest international population studying abroad in the world, Chinese students’ learning experience in an intercultural environment calls for more attention. This book covers an array of problems common to Chinese students studying abroad and explores how these students academically adjust to an intercultural environment. It also highlights how they familiarize themselves with the education system, ranging from the types of courses, academic tasks and examinations to the structure of the education as a whole in the host country, as they negotiate the gulf between academic expectations at home versus those in the host university environment and communicate with domestic lecturers and students. 

About the authors

Jiani Zhu is an Assistant Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in the Graduate School of Education, China where her research interests include academic adjustment of international Chinese students and scholars.

Reviews

“This book has provided a solid research-based case of Chinese overseas students, as a significantly large group, including their first-hand experience of confronting and overcoming tough challenges … . This study not only provides an in-depth orientation to potential students in preparing for overseas studies but also a very useful reference for faculty members responsible for guiding and supervising international students from different social and educational jurisdictions.” (Julia Pan, Frontiers of Education in China, Vol. 13, 2018)
