Understanding and Supporting Triple Transitions of International Doctoral Students

ELT And SuReCom Models

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper presents two original conceptual models to explain the triple transitions of international doctoral students and how these can be facilitated better through effective supervisory relationships. These models are based on primary data collected by authors and well known theories, namely the ABC model, Emotional Intelligence and Resilience. The data suggest that when international doctoral students moved to the UK,they had to deal with not only a new educational system and different level of studies; they also had to deal with the daily life issues of being in a new country. These educational and daily life issues were not mutually exclusive and had an impact on each other. However, if one was going exceptionally well,it could act as a buffer for any problems in the other area. Transparent supervisory relationships, where mutual expectations were clear, were seen to be an effective way of enhancing the transition experience of international doctoral students. This study is the first to explore the triple transitions of international students. The Educational and Life Transitions (ELT) and Supervision Remit Compatibility (SuReCom) models are significant in ensuring successful transition and well-being of international doctoral students.
