Research topic :
How does cultural background affect international students adjustment and academic performance at Australian universities? ->(central question : What is the effect of cultural backgrounds on the success of international students in Australia?)
For this qualitative research project i have chosen document analysis as the methodology of the research. i will also upload information regarding the methodology on a separate document. Below is some essential information regarding the project, please read thoroughly thank you.
Document analysis involves reading lots of written material, which relates to some aspect of the social world, such as media articles, public records and official reports. These documents are intended to be read as objective statements of fact but they are themselves socially produced and can tell the researcher a great deal, especially about the prevailing policy climate when they were produced.

Title of the Study Report
2. Abstract: 200-300 words, summarising the research report. It includes a brief statement of the research objectives, the scope of the study, research methodology/methods utilized, the theoretical framework applied in the analysis and research findings.
3. Table of Contents
It is possible to divide the report into sections and sub-headings to provide the reader with markers along the way. Use the main headings to structure a Table of Contents. Include a List of Acronyms, a List of Tables and/or a List of Figures if needed.
4. Chapter 1: Introduction
The Introduction provides an overview of both your research and of your report. The overview of the research would often include some description of your motivation for conducting the research, a clear statement of the research aims and objectives, the rational and significance of the study, the scope and limitations of the study, and key definitions and concepts that will guide the study. The overview of the report, on the other hand, will provide the basic structure of the report. This will include an explanation of the logic used in structuring the flow of the report and the main report headings.
5. Chapter 2: Methodology
Ideally, students will have reflected critically upon their methodological approach and will have recorded their experiences collecting data, elaborating upon strategies devised to overcome hindrances or take advantage of unexpected twists and turns in the course of their research. Such matters are appropriate for discussion in the Methodology section of the report. This is in addition to a discussion of the rationale for the selected research methodology. The most often observed weakness in this section has been when students write a very extensive explanation of the limitations of the methods (time, resources, access to interviewees, etc.) that they forget to justify why the methods they ended up using could still provide valuable information to address the research aims and objectives. It is about finding a balance between identifying the methodological limitations of you study, and also noting the possible strengths of the methods you employed.
6. Chapter 3: Literature Review
7. Data analysis
When drafting the key part of your report, keep in mind that the rules regarding structure, argument, analysis, and REFERENCING that you learned while writing undergraduate essays. It is acceptable to break this part of the report into sections and sub-sections, but make sure they are connected into a coherent whole. You will decide how to divide and present the main body of your report. Your sub-sections may be structured around your key themes; or case studies; or they may follow a chronology (e.g. if your topic is historical).
However you structure your data analysis, always keep in mind your stated research aims and your central research question (which may need some fine-tuning after you have actually gathered the data).
A summary of what you wanted to do (aims), how you did it (methods), and what you found out (data analysis) is one way to begin your conclusion. Draw together your key themes and findings and suggest areas that may need further research. Remember that there MUST be a clear and continuing argument throughout your report, culminating in a formal conclusion. You may include recommendations for policy development.
Identify all sources cited in the text. Be sure to review the proper format required for referencing.
Please make sure that every information is referenced correctly and properly (this research project only allows for a maximum of 15% turnitin similarity rating)
