Abstract [en]

This seminar presents case studies of international student experiences of Australian higher education. The paper provides insights into ways of understanding various implications of international studentsí transition into their new Australian study environment. The paper will explore aspects of enculturation, socio cultural adaptation, adjustment, language, communication and/or any learning difficulties encountered by the students. The seminar explores how students negotiate these aspects into their ethnic and cultural identities as well as their academic learning practices. Finally, the paper will discuss how best to cater for international student needs within the context of cross-cultural sensitivity and academic quality assurance directives. It hopes to raise discussion about curriculum innovation and the implementation of multicultural education principles.
