Preparedness of International Students from the British Bologna Process Degree for the Completion of a Master of Science Degree in the United States
Heaster, Dwight W.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The study evaluated the impact the Bologna (3-year European) degrees have had on graduate international students enrolled in a private university in the United States. The evaluation focused on the students' preparedness for graduate level work. The research involved the graduate faculty who had experience working with the international graduate students. The action research, with the graduate faculty, found that international students with the 3-year Bologna degree struggled with critical thinking skills. The recommendations of the group were to incorporate a critical thinking component into the current academic bridge course to improve the success rate of the international graduate students.
