Description Cross-cultural communication has a significant impact on international students in Malaysia culture regarding their gender and nationalism. Due to the lack of information and research, as well as no initiation to find out the ways to resolve the issue, the international students are concerned regarding their gender and nationalism in a host country perspective. We used appropriate literature in the fields of global teaching acculturation and adaptation of overseas students; and discrimination research and their backgrounds to discuss how global students recognize and articulate their domestic and gender identity in UMS, Sabah, Malaysia. For global students, a qualitative technique refers to say their tales overseas and describe the variables influencing the development of domestic and gender identity. A total number of participants are forty-three, who study in different faculties and institutions in UMS. In findings, it categorizes in three broad factors and those are (1) negotiations of national identity, (2) femaleness and nationhood, and lastly (3) gender negotiation: maleness and nation. Overall, this research shows how learning about who you are and who you aim to become involves the daily lives of studying in UMS. University educators and staff need to investigate and alter strategies in respects that foster understanding of how multidimensional identities can be, but also show how cultural obstacles can generate hierarchies that perpetuate inequalities.
