dc.description.abstractStudying abroad continues to appeal to international students. Although undertaking university studies in another country may primarily seem like a big adventure, the challenges facing international students should not be underestimated. This chapter explores the barriers and enablers to studying speech pathology as an international student in Australia. We first explore the current literature in this area with a specific focus on cultural and linguistic diversity. The chapter shares one vignette from a clinical placement officer and two vignettes from recently graduated international students about their views on studying speech pathology as an international student. Their voices illuminate strengths as well as challenges within the speech pathology program and the workplace learning environment. We propose that both linguistic and cultural backgrounds need to be considered to provide appropriate support to international students in both the university and work placement context, leading to students becoming competent clinicians.
