The Academic, Social, and Migratory Experiences of International Graduate Students Enrolled at the Université De Montréal: A Study of Persistence
Mainich, Sarah
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v6 p117-120 2013
From its earliest times, higher education transcended geographic boundaries so nowadays international students are a significant element of the social and cultural landscape of higher education, but international graduate students form a diverse group with different motivations for study and have become a sizeable segment of the student body in the Canadian higher educational system. However, this specific student population has not been completely understood and their diverse experiences have not been explained. This research paper deals with the issue of persistence among international graduate students enrolled at the Université de Montréal. Because the number of international graduate students has increased, strategic, social, and economic goals must be discussed. Hence, the purpose of this research is to develop a strong understanding of the factors influencing persistence and student success.
