The article presents the results of empirical research revealing the cultural specificity in the levels and combinations of various aspects of intercultural adaptation of foreign students from Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Central Asia to Russia. Students from Central Asia and Latin America have the most harmonious style of intercultural adaptation. In their structure of adaptation their outlook plays the leading role. Socialization occurs at a deeper (intrapersonal) level. Chinese students have a controversial and least effective style of adaptation. Emotional intelligence plays the leading role in it. It's very important for the Chinese to have clear goals in life and confidence in their accessibility, but uncertainty in foreign cultural environment frustrates them.
