Abstract: Exploring the potential of using Project-based Learning (PBL) in developing Intercultural Competence (IC) amongst the students necessitated this study. The study investigates the implementation of PBL in promoting IC among students at The University of Danang - University of Foreign Language Studies (UD-UFLS). The study was conducted in two phases. In the first phase, a survey questionnaire was administered among 130 students at UD-UFLS to examine the perceptions of UDUFLS students towards employing PBL in developing IC. Eight students, who have experienced with PBL, were selected for the second phase of the study. The benefits and challenges perceived by the students in developing their IC via PBL were explored using structured interviews with a focus on their perspectives and experiences with PBL, allowing the researchers to gain a deeper understanding of their subjective experiences. This study clearly demonstrated that PBL has significant potential in developing IC among UD-UFLS students. The high levels of student participation, understanding, and confidence in PBL, coupled with the perceived benefits in areas like problem-solving, communication, and real-world application, indicate that PBL can be an effective approach to fostering IC. This study also introduces the Cultural Kaleidoscope Project, a comprehensive initiative aimed at improving students' language acquisition through a deeper understanding of cultural values. The findings have significant implications for educators in Vietnam and elsewhere, highlighting the potential benefits of adopting PBL as a powerful tool to foster IC amongst university students in the hope that they can become capable of thriving in an increasingly globalised world.
Keywords: Project-based Learning (PBL); intercultural competence (IC); language students; multicultural education; perception.
