An Investigation of International Students’ Linguistic and Sociocultural Adjustments in the UK

  • Status:

Project overview

This research project investigates international students' multidimensional adjustments in the UK, particularly through linguistic and sociocultural domains. It seeks to explore the dynamic interrelationships between the two domains. This research also intends to probe what strategies sojourners employ to cope with such adjustments. In this way, this project aims to build up a cross-disciplinary and interactive model to present strategies identified for dynamic interactive linguistic and sociocultural adjustments in a transnational context. The research findings thus can support reducing social discrimination of race and ethnicity in the UK by promoting international students’ high-level integration, which can expand the concept of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in the academic institutions but also in the local city (e.g. Southampton) and the wider UK society.

This research is awarded by Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) with a total grant of £117,000.
