Abstract

This chapter describes the attitudes and perceptions of international stu¬ dents at an Australian university towards their life in the host country. First; the internationalisation of Australian education is outlined and the research project is introduced. Next; the students' responses concerning an overall level of difficulty and the attitudes of particular linguistic and cultural groups are examined. Further analysis focuses on the difficulties these diverse groups experience with different aspects of life in the host country and their attitudes towards these aspects.
