Title of Dissertation: Language Learner Autonomy, Social and Academic Integration: Multiple Case Studies of Mainland Undergraduate Students from a Hong Kong University

Supervisor: Professor Carmen Lee

Mainland undergraduate students have comprised the majority among the non-local students’ population in Hong Kong. From a context of EFL in Mainland to a context of EMI in Hong Kong, the level of students’ autonomous English learning plays a critical role in their social and academic integration. To better understand the trajectory of this cohort, the present study will investigate the development of their learner autonomy and factors contributing to the social and academic integration in Hong Kong.
