Abstract
There is an increasing wave that students are being sent to overseas for either temporary study or global internship by international programs and institutions. This article aims to examine the relationships between components of a multidimensional model of cultural intelligence, and overseas students' social-cultural and psycho-cultural experience in different cultural contexts, with special consideration given to the effects of Cultural Distance on the covered relationships. We proposed that there would be a significant difference among students on adaptability in the case of the extent of their psycho-cultural and social-cultural experience, and that cultural distance would moderate the relationship between the experience of overseas students and their cultural intelligence.
