Abstract—In recent years, there is a tremendous increasing among international students to study in Chinese universities, where who may experience considerable difficulties and challenges, particularly during the first-year study. However, there is still incipient research in this area. Thus, it is high time to explore the factors that might affect the international students’ learning performances and outcomes of Mathematics courses. The investigation is based on a sample of 140 undergraduate students from different disciplines at Zhejiang University of Science and Technology. The finding constitutes a range of contributory factors which affect their adaptions and opens new paths for future research on the international education.

Index Terms—Mathematic courses, international student, first-year.
