BCI Classifications

The BCI classifications are based upon your responses in the BCI questionnaire. They measure the level of preparedness to attempt a cultural border crossing and the degree of congruence between the departure and destination cultures.  

The departure culture is where you are now – the world of your family and community. The destination culture is where you are heading – either to employment in the private sector or studying at a university where the language of instruction differs from your own.

The greater the differences between these two cultures, the potentially more difficult will be the border crossing experience which may also affect the length of time that you spend in the destination culture.

Smooth

The two cultures – departure and destination – are very similar.  You will experience little difficulty and discomfort in making the border crossing and you will likely feel comfortable in the destination culture. You will make a successful border crossing.

Managed

The two cultures – departure and destination – are a little different.  You will experience some difficulty and discomfort in making the border crossing and you will likely feel uncomfortable at times in the destination culture. However, you will very likely make a successful border crossing.

Difficult

The two cultures – departure and destination – are quite different.  You will very likely experience difficulties and discomfort in making the border crossing and you will very likely feel uncomfortable much of the time in the destination culture. There is some chance you will not make a successful border crossing.

Doubtful

The two cultures – departure and destination – are very different.  You will very likely experience considerable difficulties and discomfort in making the border crossing and you will likely feel very uncomfortable all the time in the destination culture. There is a high chance you will not make a successful border crossing.
