Effect of Nationality on the Performance of Local and International Students in an Australian University

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearch

Abstract

This study examines the difference in the performance of local (Australian) and international (Chinese)students in an undergraduate accounting course in a tertiary institute in Australia. The results provide strong support for the notion that national pre-tertiary educational background of students (which incorporates the effects of national culture, learning approaches and language skills of the students) has a significant effect on their performance in tertiary studies. An important implication of this study is that tertiary institutes involved in educating both local and international students need to pay greater attention to the pre-tertiary educational backgrounds of their students.
