All learners use coping strategies to navigate the complexities of their university studies. For international students, these complexities can be especially challenging. Many international students facilitate positive learning experiences by developing and implementing effective coping strategies. This video reports on a research project that identified coping strategies used by international students at a UK university. Constructed data pointed to coping strategies including finding familiarity, building support networks, working it out later, and leading community action. The video brings to the fore the importance of coping strategies to a successful experience of learning, strongly suggesting that pedagogical approaches be re-imagined to identify coping strategies during teaching practice to lead to the planning and implementation of interventions that foster effective coping.
