AbstractThis article is based on a focus group study of staff and students in UK higher education institutions, where 'internationalisation' was the topic for debate. The perspectives of academics and students at five UK universities were examined to determine how they perceived their own culturally mediated approaches to learning. Evidence for internationalisation at home was sought including, in particular, views of student interaction and working in cross-cultural groups. Many staff and students demonstrated mindfulness of how local pedagogical approaches were privileged. Most described problems of lack of intercultural interaction and difficulties with particular classroom pedagogy such as group work. Participants described their difficulties but also gave anecdotal evidence of feeling personally rewarded in terms of building new friendships and developing their intercultural competencies. © 2011 Copyright HERDSA.
