Beyond Borders: International Student Pathways to the United States
Lee, Jenny J.
Journal of Studies in International Education, v12 n3 p308-327 2008
This study investigates college access in the United States and within the larger context of the global marketplace as a way to extend current views of college access to the international realm. Using surveys and interviews among international students in a case U.S. institution, this study finds that information sources and reasons for studying at the U.S. institution differ by international student background characteristics. This study then further elaborates on the diverse pathways based on international students' backgrounds as a way to expand current conceptions of college access. (Contains 2 tables and 2 notes.)
