Asian female students in Australia: temporary movements and student migration

J Aust Popul Assoc. 1995 Nov;12(2):113-30. doi: 10.1007/BF03029313.

Abstract

"The most significant population movement affecting Australia in recent years has been a dramatic growth in the number of short term arrivals.... While a substantial literature has evolved concerning overseas students' temporary migration and settlement, there has been only limited demographic analysis undertaken to date, including minimal attempt to explore the participation and specific student experience of women. This paper seeks to address this omission through presentation of a detailed analysis of the characteristics of Asian female students within the overall student movement, together with a preliminary exploration of issues related to their personal and academic transition."
