This study addresses the challenges presented by conducting an OIL project with an overseas institution. In 2016 during the Writing for Magazines module, students were asked to compare and exchange travel articles with students in New York, and tasked with reflecting on the cultural references whilst showing appreciation of the complex interacting factors that contribute to notions of cultural relationships. Their articles focused on cultural comparisons between their experiences on 'A Student Night Out' using a new online environment. The aim of the project was to help students develop key competences (whether knowledge, attitudes or skills) enabling them to communicate appropriately and effectively in intercultural contexts, socially and at work.
