Abstract: Abstract: In recent years, the Taiwanese government has promoted global education at Taiwanese universities in the hope of attracting international students to higher education programs in Taiwan. As a consequence, the population of international graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in Taiwan is increasing. However, while the number of international students studying in Taiwan has increased considerably in recent years, little is known about their studying experiences. The purpose of this study is to explore five international graduate students’ academic experiences at a Taiwanese university by investigating their perceptions related to four themes: 1. language barriers; 2. classroom culture; 3. academic writing in Science; 4. friendship networks. Data collection covered two semesters and it included semi-structured interviews, classroom and laboratory observations, and writing samples. The findings indicated that international students’ experiences regarding the four themes had both positive and negative impacts on their studies in Taiwan. Insights gained from this study offered practical implications for policy makers, researchers as well as educators involved in internationalizing higher education in Taiwan.
