Supervisors: Anthony WELCH , Nigel BAGNALL

Thesis abstract:

The purpose of this study is to explore parental influences, the intersecting cultural factors, and how the combination affects tertiary education and preliminary career choices of young women of Arabic descent. The research is comparative, and will be conducted on young women of Arab nationalities/backgrounds in the UAE and Australia. The aim of this comparison is to investigate how similarly/differently Arab women raised in different contexts are influenced by their parents when making career choices, and the results of this influence.
