CRITICAL REVIEW OF A QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH
Critical Review of a Quantitative Research
International student migration is a growing phenomenon that is attracting the attention of researchers globally. The quantitative study by Farrelly and Murphy (2018) presents the argument that international students tend to find challenges in accommodation and cost of living. Additional challenges revealed by the exploration include social experiences in terms of the need for connectedness. Differences in assessments is a major factor, especially for English as a Second Language (ESL) students.
As a quantitative study, the research draws of numerical data collected from the Higher Education Authority (secondary data) and primary data collected through online using questionnaires. Statistical treatment of the numerical data is done to yield descriptive results intended to answer the research question. A sample size of n=573 is used and distributed across the major higher education institutions in the country.
