Abstract

This paper reports on a study conducted in the University of Newcastle, Australia, aiming to search for new knowledge about resolving teaching-learning problems due to the cultural differences rather than language deficiencies of overseas students, in particular, the South East Asian and the Middle Eastern postgraduate students in Australian universities. The study is generating important insights into the development of a new inclusive academic culture in Australian universities in order to meet the educational needs in a rapidly globalizing world.
