This edited book charts the learning journeys of eight Chinese students across national and continental boundaries and socio-cultural contexts and draws out the implications for higher education in the UK. All originally from mainland China, each contributor presents a reflective autobiographical account of their experiences of studying in both China and the UK. Their reflections are structured around the turning points and life changing choices they have made in chasing their dreams. This exciting and original book deepens and broadens our understanding of the overseas student experience and how this is shaping the aspirations of a future generation of Chinese citizens. Their dreams of the future will affect not only their own fates but also the future of Chinese civil society. It is this generation - informed by international travel and overseas study - that will play a leading role in the creation of the new China. They constitute its emergent intellectual and professional cadre. "Chinese Learning Journeys" offers a scholarly resource for the academic research community. It provides higher education practitioners with important insights into the cultural backgrounds and aspirations of overseas students. Those responsible for overseas student recruitment and welfare will find it invaluable, as will those working in areas of language support and academic writing.
