Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a study of the relationship between offshore and onshore students’ perceptions of their learning environment and quality of education. The responses were analysed using hierarchical regression analyses, and the results showed that the students’ perceptions of learning environments were strong predictors of educational experiences for both the onshore and offshore students. The paper highlights the implications for teaching and learning, particularly, for managing the quality of offshore programs.
