Over the last decade, higher education institutions in the UK have seen a large rise in the number of international students wishing to study for a masters degree. For many overseas students the first choice of destination to study is the UK. But to what extent are British universities able to meet the needs and expectations of international students? This paper discusses a case study from the University of Chester, UK.
The University of Chester Business School inaugurated its MBA for international students in the autumn of 2007. During the late spring of 2008 we held two focus group discussions with students from the first intake to ascertain what factors had encouraged the students to study in the UK, and more specifically at the University of Chester. We also discussed with the students their expectations of the course & university, and where their expectations had and had not been met. This paper discusses the findings from this research. Mind the Gap!
