Abstract

Psychology programmes provide a unique context for international students undertaking work placements. Based on in-depth interviews with international students and their supervisors, this chapter explores how the life histories of international students shape the strengths and vulnerabilities they bring to placements. We then describe how these strengths and vulnerabilities intersect with the affordances provided by workplaces to shape students’ experiences. We conclude with a number of recommendations for universities, supervisors, and workplaces to enhance the learning and performance of international students, as well as their contribution to workplaces.
