Abstract

The research concentrates on Chinese Mandarin-speaking students’ acculturation journey within their undergraduate studies in UK business schools, to identify issues that impact on their acculturation and academic adaptation, in an endeavour to provide the implications for teaching and learning, to the Chinese students, their lecturers, and the business schools for a more satisfying outcome of teaching and learning experience. Supporting this research, a theoretical framework is constructed, which includes the cultural dimensions at national and organisational level, the acculturation strategy, the descriptions of Chinese and British pedagogy, and cultural synergy in the intercultural learning environment. Surveys and case studies are introduced using the mixed method approaches to collect and analyse data separately. As a developmental paper, the initial findings are reported upon and comments offered with suggestions as to how to plan and further develop the research.
