          Abstract

          This study is designed as preliminary research into the relationship between developing global citizenship and studying abroad by investigating the perceptions of Chinese students who studied in a UK university in 2006. Through the lens of Oxfam's perspective of global citizenship, findings that are based on questionnaires and in-depth interviews show that Chinese students have a particular understanding of global citizenship and do not commonly accept the global citizen identity. Studying abroad is deemed to have a positive effect on the development of some elements of global citizenship but a comprehensive sense of global citizenship seems not to be developed explicitly as a result of studying abroad.
