The International Student Journey
Baker, Gail; Hawkins, Ken
Australian Universities' Review, v48 n2 p20-25 May 2006
Over the last decade the Australian higher education sector has become increasingly reliant upon the income generated by overseas fee-paying students. Yet the experiences of these students are sometimes traumatic, and institutions have been slow to develop appropriate structures to support them. The authors report on recent efforts to overcome this legacy of neglect. These include the "Communities that Care" program that highlights the need for early intervention programs to promote the protective factors needed to offset risk factors.
