This afterword considers the context of internationalization in the UK and in China. In this we will consider the aspect of students numbers and types in the UK and of some responses to the changing situation in China. This author also presents and comments on a small-scale survey and research project which looks at one way of helping the international student to adapt, through the teaching of intercultural communication. The conclusion is that this and the other means of responding to the needs of the Chinese learner proposed by our authors in this book can contribute to a positive outcome for the students in our care.
