Abstract
Students’ intercultural competence should be considered as an important outcome of institutional internationalization in today’s higher education. Chinese universities should make good use of diversified educational resources to promote students’ intercultural competence. This paper first introduces Byram’s ICC Model in the intercultural education and the educational goals conforming to the talents cultivation at Chinese universities in the globalization era, and then develops an intercultural education system out of the current extracurricular resources accessible at the Chinese universities. This system, based on extracurricular activities, is consisted of two major parts: training program and competence contest, which are suggested to be operated in the joint framework of students’ affairs and teaching administration. Suggestions on operation principles and further development are also included.
