 About the Book 

Many universities in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have come to rely heavily on the fees received from postgraduate research students who come from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB). These students make huge adaptations: to another language, an alien culture, and a different tradition of learning. They may suffer acute loneliness, confusion about cultural norms in the host country and, in consequence, their study may suffer.
