Abstract:
This report presents some of the findings from a survey undertaken over the academic year 2005/6 at the University of Wolverhampton, with the aim of discovering as much as possible, from a range of perspectives, about the experience of international students at the University. To limit the scope of the investigation, the survey focussed on three nationalities/regions: a mature and well-researched market (mainland China), and two emerging and little-researched markets (India and West Africa, i.e. Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon). Because no Indian students were available for interview, this paper gives the findings for Chinese and West African students only.
