Abstract :

This paper explores factors that influenced the quality of stay of Chinese-speaking mobile students in France, as the living experience abroad is one of the most-cited difficulties for international students. For practicality, we sieve through previous researches to identify 20 factors (grouped into 4 Dimensions: Personal Dimension Teacher's Effectiveness Dimension, Campus Environment Dimension, and Daily Environment Dimension), which most likely correlated with the quality of the stay of mobile Chinese-speaking students in France. We adopt the DANP (DEMATEL-based ANP) model, i.e., combining the Decision Making and Trial Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method and the Analysis Network Process (ANP), to construct the Influential Network Relation Maps, identifying the hierarchical structure among the factors and the dimensions. We find that the "Teacher's Effectiveness" is the most influential dimension to the other 3 dimension. Our research can provide more insights on the French educational system improvement, and help define a more effective policy strategy focus.
