conference paper description
International students experience specific stressors that domestic students generally do not encounter. Despite the larger body of research on international students, there has been a lack of attention towards the experience of international students enrolled in faith-based institutions. Hence, this study aimed to highlight the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and spiritual aspects of the international student experience in faith-based institutions. Through the Consensual Qualitative Research method (Hill et al., 2005), we conducted interviews with participants enrolled in a Christian university. We identified domains and some core ideas, and found several culture-specific aspects of the international student experience in faith-based institutions.
