Abstract

Gratitude is acknowledged as an important part of relational exchange, in essence the emotional core of reciprocity (Dewani and Sinha 2012). Al-Khawaldeh (2014) found that expressions of gratitude play a role in establishing and sustaining relationships. This paper argues that in adopting a relational approach to higher education, gratitude assumes a role worthy of exploration. The study examines feelings and expressions of gratitude within higher education. It seeks to identify emerging themes amongst students and academics which contribute to our understanding of cross-cultural communication.
