Information literacy minimizes the risks of studying abroad

The ability to find, absorb and use information in a new and foreign context is of great importance in managing everyday life in a new country.

New research on how information is used can change the way to plan education for people who come to a new country with another mother tongue in their luggage. Doctoral student Alison Hicks at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Borås, has investigated how students who, for a limited period of time, end up in a new environment in a new country, experience information in their daily lives, in their education or in the workplace.
