Ethnicity shapes everyone’s identity. It symbolizes a set of aspects that gather culture, language and religion under one single dimension. Ethnic groups are mainly multi-faceted and they mirror the nation’s background and even language. Overseas students tend to represent their ethnic belonging to a given cultural profiles that can be hardly given a second thought. However, such a difference may be a reason of the existence of stereotypes and prejudice that can be developed by the people of the target culture who possess a subjective idea about the way they perceive these foreigners, and even the language that is purely connected to its people and hence, any idea to be drawn about its concern, is merely found in its culture. This study aims at exploring Algerian overseas PhD students’- particularly in the UK- perceptions towards ethnicity and whether it represents a burden against reaching cultural tolerance and mutual understanding with the target culture and its people. It tries also to evaluate these learners’ awareness and expectancy of such a real context where different cultures meet and coexist. Via this study, the researcher seeks to develop concrete evidence of how can ethnic groups build a sense of acceptance and peace despite the prior value judgments and cultural beliefs.
