This study investigated the relationship between resilience and cross-cultural adaptation of international students in a Chinese university. Survey method (Questionnaire) was used and 85 international students from 12 different countries completed this questionnaire. Resilience Scale questionnaire and Socio-cultural Adaptation Scale questionnaire were used in this study. As hypothesized, there is a correlation between resilience and cross-cultural adaption of international students. But, the result showed that there was no significant correlation between resilience and socio-cultural adaptation of the international students in China. However, there were significant differences of resilience of students according to age group, country, length of year they had lived in China and their marital status. Moreover, there is a significant difference of socio-cultural adaptation of students based on their residence years in China.
