This WAIER research seminar was recently presented by Associate Professor Rhonda Oliver:
“The number of international students enrolled in Australian universities has grown over the last decade. At the same time, concern and anecdotal reports indicating that many non-English speaking background (NESB) students experience considerable difficulties in their courses have increased. There are two important issues in relation to this: the admission procedures implemented prior to student enrolment; and, what is done once students are enrolled. These two aspects will be explored in this presentation using evidence from two large scale and recently published studies.”
