Currently, China is ranked the third most popular destination for international students, following the United States and the United Kingdom. In contrast with the extensive research interest in the experiences of international students in traditional destination countries, there is a general lack of understanding regarding international student experiences in China.

This special issue focuses on international students in China. It contributes a critical Chinese perspective to existing literature on international student experiences. We welcome research articles, theoretical discussions and critical reflections on policies, practices and experiences of international students across geographically and educationally diverse contexts in China. We ask potential authors to adopt a critical, anti-essentialist point of view when exploring and discussing issues related to China and Chinese international student education.

Individual manuscripts may discuss the following topics:

  • National policies and institutional practices;
  • Internationalisation of the curriculum;
  • Academic motivations, expectations and levels of satisfaction;
  • Pedagogy, teacher-student interactions and learning engagement;
  • Social encounters, intercultural challenges and adaptation;
  • Identity: stereotypes and otherisation;
  • Learning and teaching the Chinese language as a foreign language;
  • And other relevant issues.
