Domestic students' ambivalence about their international peers

One of the most difficult issues to address related to hosting international students in any country is the ambivalence of the domestic students toward their international peers. A recent study in the UK found that domestic Brits believed that international students required more attention, slowed down learning, and lowered the quality of learning available for all students. In order to welcome international students, institutions need to do a better job of preparing their domestics to know what to expect and how to be good learning partners themselves. If domestic students were more responsive, there'e little doubt that international students would have a better experience and that domestic students would begin to value their presence.
