Higher Education Preparation and Decision-Making Trends among International Students
Bista, Krishna; Dagley, Amy
College and University, v90 n3 p2-8, 10-11 2015
This paper examines how international students obtain information about college in the United States when they are in their home countries. The findings reveal that the majority of students visit university websites to obtain information regarding various programs. Students also receive scholarships and/or assistantships from the university, financial support from family, and encouragement from their friends and relatives to study overseas. Students are self-motivated to pursue higher education in the United States in order to obtain better professional opportunities. These findings will help college administrators and faculty improve the quality of campus resources, including admission and recruitment materials, and will address the concerns of international students on their campuses.
