Coping with Study Abroad

Chinese international students are the largest population of international students studying in Australia (approx. 30%), however research with this population into their experiences and adjustment to studying abroad is limited. Recent research conducted through the University of Melbourne (Wong & Hyde, 2019; Shah & Hyde, 2020) has focused on improving our understanding of the adjustment experience of Chinese international students.

In response to this research, a wellbeing program, Coping with Studying Abroad, has been developed by Dr. Chelsea Hyde, Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
