International students experience multiple and multi-dimensional educational and life transitions: moving to a new country, moving to a new educational system and moving to higher educational degree programmes.

Within these transitions, they experience differences in the social and organisational cultures, languages, and interpersonal expectations, realities and relationships.

Their transitions also lead to, and interact with, transitions of professionals, home students and their families. Multi-dimensional Transitions of International Students to Higher Education provides up-to-date literature, research and theoretical constructs that underpin international students' transitions to Higher Education.
