This paper reports a study of the academic and non-academic demands as perceived by a group of Australian non-native English speaking students in the first semester of the postgraduate studies. It draws on relevant research and relates this to the participants’ responses to a written questionnaire and follow up face-to-face interviews which captured insider perspectives about academic difficulties: the use of L1; the match between lecturers’ teaching styles and students’ preferred learning styles; listening, speaking, reading and writing; library and other resource usage as well as other non-academic demands.
