Perception of the Impact of International Education: Japanese vs. American Students.
Archwamety, Teara
This study of Japanese and American exchange students focuses on the "perceived" rather than on the "real" impact of international education on one's own society and on the society hosting the foreign student. Thirty-four randomly selected American undergraduate students attending a Japanese university in Osaka, Japan and 34 randomly selected Japanese students who had just returned from a year of international study abroad participated in the study. The Japanese and American students' perceptions of the impact of their studies on the politics, economy, technology, education, knowledge expansion, and international relations of their home country and their host country were researched. The Japanese students viewed the impact of their return on the Japanese economy and technology as significantly more positive than the American students viewed the impact of their return on the U.S. economy and technology. American students viewed the impact of foreign students in the United States on the U.S. economy as significantly more positive than the Japanese students viewed the impact of foreign students in Japan on the Japanese economy. The view of both the American and Japanese students on the impact of international education was, in general, positive. (PRW)
