Erden, Ali
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v5 n12A p152-167 2017
Lifelong education is a process including positive and negative experiences at the same time. Negative experiences mostly appear as impediments to the overseas students. They need to overcome impediments they experience throughout their education. The paper discussed the key findings of a two-year research project for identifying the impediments and their frequency faced in the higher education sector and for proposing a managerial model. This case study adopted a descriptive methodology under qualitative research paradigm. Data were collected through focus group interviews (FGIs) and in-depth interviews (I-DIs). Focus group members (FGMs) were 50 OSs studying various departments and various universities in NC. I-DIs were taken place with 75 different overseas university students (dOSs) studying at various departments of universities in NC. The impediments are identified on mobility, adaptation, internationalization and maturation which are strongly affected by the feelings and affections, changes, irregularities and barriers. The managerial model is based on managing accommodation and transportation; managing studentship; managing student health; managing students' welfare and managing being worldwide.
