摘要: 
本研究旨在瞭解泰籍研究生在臺灣的課業適應,包含來臺留學之動機、在臺的課業學習經驗及其困難、與學生生涯的成長軌跡。本研究採取深度訪談法,以及參與式的觀察,邀請兩位泰籍研究生,其中一位男博士生與一位女碩士生進行一對一的深度訪談。 研究結果發現,泰籍研究生在臺灣的課業適應所遇到的障礙大致可分為:「背景素養」、「語言」、「實驗」、「人際」、「經濟」、「心理」、「學習夥伴」七大類,泰國學生的7大類的課業困擾可以進一步分為16類的細目,例如:學術基礎嚴重不足、缺乏實際做實驗的技巧、不易瞭解授課內容、無法有流暢的口頭報告、閱讀外文文獻的理解度欠佳、預備書面報告與論文寫作能力欠佳、無法跟同學討論、實驗器材與設備不足、無法推測實驗結果、實驗失敗的挫折、與指導教授的關係不好、經濟重擔太沈重、獎學金被刪減、進行論文與口頭報告時易產生心理壓力、親人過世而產生嚴重失落感、缺乏同儕在學業上與情緒上的支持。 針對上述的研究發現,研究者其次首先對學校提出一些具體建議:一、要規劃並開設不同程度的中文/華語加強課程;二、提供新生訓練課程;三、提供預防式的心理諮商;四、提供接待家庭方案;五、建立支持性的環境或具有該國特色的社交性團體。其次,對學習方面提出的具體建議為:一、營造一個溫馨的學習環境;二、營造一個友善的語言和國際化的課堂。最後,對外籍學生提出的具體建議為:一、來臺之前詳細閱讀並參考入學說明與科系發展重點;二、堅持修完中文課程;三、提升自我的英文能力;四、加入本地生的社團;五、加入同鄉的學生會。
