In the process of the internationalization of higher education, a meaningful
integration of international students at host universities has gained interest
in the past two decades. Against this background, the purpose of this study
was to explore the voices of the main actors involved, i.e., staff members,
who provide social and cultural support services at host universities, and
international students who experience the offered support. Three countries
were selected: the United States of America (USA), the Republic of Korea
(Korea), and Germany. Among these Korea was not only chosen due to the
researcher’s biographical background but also recognizing the fact that Korea
is the major sender of international students, and the USA and Germany are
the main receivers of these students worldwide. The qualitative empirical
approach chosen in this study centered around semi-structured interviews
with experts and international students from the three countries in question
applying a reflexive comparative perspective, thus making it possible to
cross-reference individual voices.
