The study examined the impact of multiple intelligences on acculturative stress in academic sojourners enrolled in universities situated in UK. Moreover, demographic differences on multiple intelligences and acculturative stress were inquired. Pakistani university students in UK (N = 300) were research participants contacted through key informants using purposive sampling to complete the survey on Cultural Intelligence Scale Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale) and Acculturative Stress Scale. Linear Regression Analysis showed negative effect of cultural and emotional intelligences on acculturative stress in academic sojourners of UK. Hierarchical Regression Analysis identified that cultural intelligence was the most prominent negative predictor of acculturative stress.
