Project Details


This study investigates the relationship between online communication platforms and the identity among international students, focusing on Nepal, India, and China in Darwin, Australia. The exploration is rooted in sociocultural contexts unique to Darwin, characterized by its multiculturalism, Indigenous heritage, Western-influenced, and remote location. The study aims to examine the complexities of international education as self-formation that occurs during their educational experience and understand the impact of online and offline spaces on their identities. By exploring the online media use and study experience, this research provides insights into the multifaceted nature of international students' identities and their interactions with the diverse social fabric of Darwin, offering implications for educational policies and support services.
