Chinese International Students' Perspective and Strategies in Preparing for Their Future Employability
Huang, Rong; Turner, Rebecca; Chen, Qian
Journal of Vocational Education and Training, v66 n2 p175-193 2014
Graduate employability and the contribution graduates make to the UK economy have been widely debated by policy-makers; however, little attention has been paid to the employability of international students. Given the growing significance of international students to the UK economy this is an interesting oversight; this article addresses this issue. Students from the Mainland China currently represent nearly 16% of the international student population; therefore, we focused on this group; firstly, to examine their perspectives on their future employability; and then, to examine how they prepared for their future careers. Given that internationalisation is a priority for many UK universities, the findings of this research will make a significant contribution to these under-researched areas.
