Abstract

The internationalization in higher education is very popular around the word. The United Kingdom has many great universities that are famous and highly ranked around the world, and attract students from different countries. The internationalization in the higher education institutions in the UK is very common, and almost each university has international students and international academic staff. The different educational background and cultural background rich the cultural diversity, however, also bring challenges to international academic staff. Therefore, this paper aims to research the challenges international academic staff face in terms of culture and discuss the influence of that. The paper will choose Chinese academic staff in the Nottingham university as research subjective, since Chinese academic staff are now the top group of international academic staff in the UK, and the state system and educational context are quite different between China and UK. The paper will use semi-structured interview as research method to find the challenges and influence of culture on them.
