The Cultural and Educational Transitioning of First Generation Immigrant Undergraduate Students in Quebec, Canada
Sinacore, Ada L.; Lerner, Sasha
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v13 n1 p67-85 Mar 2013
The diversity of Canadian society and the significance of education for occupational mobility have prompted investigations into immigrant's educational attainment, yet little research examines immigrant post-secondary students. This phenomenological study illuminates the institutional, societal, educational, and psychosocial barriers facing immigrant undergraduates in Quebec, and examines their mentoring and career counselling needs. Recommendations for career counselling and university programming are discussed.
