Despite the increasing global popularity of international study, little research has been done on the lives of students who undertake it. Based on detailed case studies conducted in Australia and New Zealand, this volume explores how governments influence the welfare of newly arrived students and how students shape their own experiences with the help of family, friends, and peer networks. With implications for international study in countries around the world, Regulating International Students’ Wellbeing makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a little-understood global population.

Review Quotes
Dean Forbes, Flinders University, Australia
“Universities and governments want to attract international students but rarely consider student wellbeing. This book’s account of critical issues, with two national good-practice case studies, is essential reading for international education policymakers.”
