#studyco #studyinaustralia A recent report on the satisfaction levels of international students in Australia and study in Australia, the United States and Britain has found that a student’s social life plays a big role in their happiness with their study experience. International students who made local friends were more satisfied with their international education. They were also more willing to recommend their university to others. The report, released by the International Graduate Insight Group, surveyed 60,000 international students across 48 universities. It revealed that levels of satisfaction varied across national groups. Researchers found that students from China – the largest source of international students – are some of the least satisfied with their experience.
Most of the international students were generally happy with their overseas education experience, but those who were not said they would not recommend their institutions to others. While the study does not suggest that unhappy international students will lead to the downfall of our lucrative international education industry, it does prompt us to ask why they are unhappy, and what can be done about it.
