Abstract

This thesis aims to determine the language and cultural issues perceived as important by Korean students in the context of British higher education. Looking into Korean students' perceived expectations of and goals for overseas study in the UK, it aims to investigate how far cultural factors affect Korean students' academic progress and social adaptation, and to what extent misconceptions or stereotypes about Asian learners can be justified.
