Abstract or Summary

This study was prompted by one institution's decision to make flexible delivery and internationalization a strategic priority. Through an existing relationship with an education institute in China, it has been possible to gauge their students' online learning experiences, preferences and intentions to study mixed mode delivery programmes overseas. However, on quick review of the literature, it became apparent that there is a dearth of research on overseas students' online learning preferences. The researcher set out to redress this imbalance and from the insights gained put forward suggestions to strengthen online programme development, staff training and IT investment. These recommendations provide practical strategies for institutes that want to provide relevant programmes to international students and to grow in the international market place.
