Abstract
More and more students have been enrolling into doctorate programs in other countries and this trend seems likely to continue. Nevertheless, while a great array of research focuses on international students in general, we are much less well informed about the international doctoral students who contribute to an ever more internationalized higher education. Longer periods of education abroad may lead to a weakening of prior networks together and the creation of new ones, but not much is known about the social support networks of international PhD students. This article uses a mixed method approach (qualitative interviews and ego-centered network analysis) to fill this gap, making a contribution towards understanding the support obtained by these students from different types of friendships.
