Study and Stress among First-Year Overseas Students in an Australian University.
Burns, Robert B.
Higher Education Research and Development, v10 n1 p61-77 1991
An Australian study compared stressors among freshman foreign and native students, primarily in business administration. Foreign students had significantly more difficulty adjusting to academic requirements and study needs, particularly study methods, independent study, language skills, participation, and time management, and had higher stress overall. Improved support services are recommended. (Author/MSE)
