The International Student's Experience: An Exploratory Study of Students from Vietnam
Wearring, Andrew; Le, Huong; Wilson, Rachel; Arambewela, Rodney
International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, v14 n1 p71-89 2015
International students are an important part of today's global university sector. This paper explores, through 10 in-depth interviews, the perceptions of Vietnamese international students studying with regard to their experience of teaching and learning in Australia. The findings indicate that Vietnamese students struggle with language, assessment, and Western teaching and learning styles. Many interviewees felt that local students often lumped them together with other international students, who sometimes had no desire to befriend or work with them. The paper provides recommendations on how to improve students' experiences and adds to the current debate on international students' satisfaction, with general implications for international education.
