International students can be a source of skilled workers for many industrialized countries with an aging population. However, it is unclear if international students would stay after completing their studies, given booming economies in their home countries. The present paper explores the decision processes international students make when considering to stay or return home after completing their studies. The analysis is based on an autoethnographic account of an international student who studied in Canada, and follows her journey as an international student through to settlement as a self-initiated expatriate. The present paper deepens our understanding on the decision processes international students undertake when considering whether or not to stay in the host country upon completion of their studies.
