2015 (English)In: Proc. 1st Al Baha University and Uppsala University Symposium on Quality in Computing Education, 2015, 6-8 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the intake of international students at universities. Integrating foreign students into the disciplinary and social culture prevalent at the university is a challenging task. In this paper, first, we summarize the findings of three of our studies on the experiences of Chinese students studying computer science at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Sweden. Then, based on our findings we make recommendations on how to integrate international students into academic life at Computer Science departments. We focus on the program and course levels, and also at the level of individual students in their new social and cultural environment.
