An exploration of the course experience perceptions of recently graduated international students (1117)

Information on the higher education student experience is important for institutions seeking to enhance the quality of their courses through evidence-based decision making. This is especially true in relation to international students, who may have notably different course experiences than their domestic counterparts. A long-standing source of these data in Australian higher education is the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ), administered annually as a component of the Australian Graduate Survey. The CEQ investigates 11 facets of the student experience, with a focus on skill development, teaching quality and overall satisfaction. This session will explore the course experience perceptions of recently graduated international students, with particular attention to differences between international and domestic students. Specific areas for improvement will be identified.
