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
