In the post-epidemic era, there has been a recovery trend of Chinese students studying in the UK. The emergence of new characteristics of cross-cultural adaptation brings opportunities and challenges to international students. At present, the overseas study mode is mainly based on online teaching, and the proportion of Chinese students in British classes has greatly increased, which reduces the language and cultural exchanges with local students in the UK and hinders social communication to some degree, which leads to a relatively conservative stage of cross-cultural adaptation of Chinese students. At the same time, Sino-UK cooperation institutions and the development of new media have brought convenience to cross-cultural adaptation. Therefore, how to have a great cross-cultural adaptation is an important issue for Chinese students who will and are studying abroad in the post-epidemic era.
