In recent decades, the high quality of life and study environment in Australia has attracted an increasing number of Chinese students to apply to Australian universities. However, the major differences between eastern and western societies bring some difficulties for Chinese students studying in Australia, such as social and cultural challenges, learning styles and language barriers. To tackle these issues, this study will investigate multiple strategies utilized by these students to support their academic learning. Two graduated Chinese students from one Australian university are invited as participants to conduct a semi-structured interview. This study aims to help Chinese students to adapt to multilingual settings as well as provide suggestions to the curriculum design of Australian university lecturers and tutors.
