The Need to Investigate Greek Students' Experiences in British Universities: The Use of Ethnography in the Identification of Such a Need
Katsara, Rania
International Education Journal, v5 n1 p79-89 2004
The growth in international students coming to the United Kingdom has well been documented, but little research has been undertaken into the implications for specific national cohorts, particularly with regard to students from Greece. There is lack of research into the nature and persistence of issues faced by such students. This article presents the results of the initial interviews, which were held in order to decide the parameters of the research and to understand the sort of issues, which it would be helpful to investigate further. The article also underlines the importance of ethnographic perspectives in the identification of research questions in research.
