Adjustment Issues of International Students Enrolled in American Colleges and Universities: A Review of the Literature
de Araujo, Abrahao Andre
Higher Education Studies, v1 n1 p2-8 Jun 2011
This article is a review of the literature concerning the adjustment issues experienced by international students enrolled in American colleges and universities. Convergent findings indicated that English fluency, social support, length of stay in the U.S., perceived discrimination or prejudice, establishing relationships with Americans, and homesickness were the most significant variables related to the adjustment of international students. Limitations in the literature and suggestions for future research are discussed.
