Coming to Canada to Study: Factors that Influence Student's Decisions to Participate in International Exchange
Massey, Jennifer; Burrow, Jeff
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v49 n1 p83-100 Feb 2012
Increasing numbers of students are participating in study abroad programs. Outcomes associated with these programs have been studied extensively, but relatively little is known about what motivates and influences students to participate. This study investigated factors that motivate and influence students to study on exchange and explored how these factors vary by social identity. The findings support the development of programs, services, and marketing that meet students' needs. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
