Summary The data consists of qualitative interviews regarding international students. It provides insight into the discursive representations of international students in an Australian university setting. This data provides a critique of institutional discourses that are informed by race, culture and identity, learning constraints and particular constructions of English and offers ways of thinking that enable a movement beyond into the arena of multiplicity and complexity. While this data is of the discursive practices at one institution it is nonetheless suggestive for other universities. It points to the benefits of examining through a postcolonial lens the discursive practices of the institution alongside the subjectivities of students. The mismatch that is evident in this data indicates the need for institutional change if the goal of genuine internationalisation is to be achieved.
General notes The data was collected through semi-structured qualitative interviews. The cassette tapes containing the interviews are organised by the interviewees names.

The data was created for and used to produce a thesis titled 'The discursive representation of international undergraduate students : a case study of a higher education institutional site.'
