Since China proposed its “Belt and Road Initiative” in 2013 to boost its influence on international affairs and “cultivate international personnel who are friendly toward China”, the number of foreign students in China has surge exponentially. Yet the global political changes have added tensions and challenges to the education of international students.

This book is one of the first works to discuss the educational experiences of international students in China. Using survey research and qualitative studies to study participants in degree-bearing and language programmes at regular universities and Sino-Foreign universities located in different areas of China, the book covers a variety of topics across education, including international students’ intercultural experience, teacher-student classroom interaction, learning and teaching Chinese as a foreign language, academic adaptation, and otherised-identity formation in higher education contexts, etc.

This book is essential for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers in the international student education in China. It can also benefit prospective international students considering pursuing higher education in China.
