    Abstract

    The importance of motivation in academic learning is recognised by many authors. So, what is motivation and why should we consider it within the context of international students? Motivating international students requires that we shift our thinking and practice to anticipate, differentiate and respond to their needs. International students can then benefit consistently from equivalent opportunities available to UK students, are more likely to feel valued and included, and are thus more likely to succeed. If we attend to the particular requirements of international learning contexts, we can develop understandings and skills to motivate all students studying or researching in the UK
