"The mosaic of Canadian university campuses is changing to reflect the presence of more and more minority students, including both Chinese international and immigrant students. This qualitative study explored what Chinese students have experienced in their later-year Canadian university studies and how their Canadian educational experiences have made an impact on them. Four major themes emerged from the analysis of the data: (1) perspectives from a later-year point of view; (2) expectations and outcomes; (3) students' perceived contributions to Canadian higher education and society; and lastly, (4) their suggestions for Canadian professors, future Chinese students, and university staff. One significant finding of the students' accounts was that participants' later-year academic experience was even more stressful than the first year.
