This report examines a common problem among students who study abroad, namely, that they remain with like-nationals during their stay. Some university students refrain from interacting with students from other cultures. This phenomenon is explained by the “stress” phase in Cultural Adaptation Theory. This project commits to providing a solution to interaction barriers by introducing the Third Culture Theory. A framework for third culture building is advanced that allows students to gain more out of the study abroad experience.
