This chapter explores the possibilities and limits of the informal curriculum in promoting intercultural dialogue among students in the context of a specific Chinese university. Through a document analysis of the institution’s internationalisation policy and an investigation of the University’s informal curriculum linked to internationalisation, this study investigated a group of home and international students’ experiences and interpretations vis-à-vis the implementation of this informal curriculum, questioning how far the university environment promotes intercultural dialogue through its internationalisation policy.
