International Students: A Vulnerable Student Population
Sherry, Mark; Thomas, Peter; Chui, Wing Hong
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, v60 n1 p33-46 Jul 2010
This study examines the experiences of international students at The University of Toledo, where international students comprise approximately 10% of the student population. It highlights problems international students experience such as adapting to a new culture, English language problems, financial problems and lack of understanding from the broader University community. Recommendations for improvement include initiatives to raise the profile of international students, improved financial assistance and scholarships, and creating opportunities for international students to improve their spoken English skills.
