Chinese international students in Australia: A study of the transformative potential of education abroad

Grant number: FT140100222 | Funding period: 2015 - 2021



This longitudinal study of female Chinese students in Australian universities is the first to trace in detail these students’ subjective experience of their journeys from China to Australia and their post-graduation destinations. Through in-depth ethnographic research, it will reveal how these young women’s time in Australia impacts on their gendered and national-cultural sense of identity. This project aims to deepen knowledge in areas directly linked to Australian education export, and enhance Australia’s engagement with its region.
