Main Article Content
Modern globalisation processes, the rapid entry of Russia into the world community, have given more opportunities to interact with various ethnic groups ranging from short-term tourist and business contacts to complex processes of migration and emigration. Migrants and visitors have different goals for staying in a new country, meanwhile the researchers note a lot in common within the adaptation processes of both groups. In particular, tension, stresses and experience of cultural shock during adaptation are observed. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct psychological studies not only of migrants who come for a long time to a new country, but also of visitors, i.e., interns, students who come to study in foreign universities. Anyway, all migrants face difficulties in interacting with local residents whose behaviour cannot be predicted. The host country’s customs often seem mysterious to them, and people seem strange.
Keywords: Adaptation, bologna process, ethnopsychology, exchange students.
