Literature Review
According to Loomes & Croft (2013, p. 486), the increase in number of students from foreign countries in Australia has elicited the need for proper dietary evaluation for this group. Australian cultural practices and dietary habits are being modified gradually by the growing number of foreigners in the country. The author indicates that international students who come in Australia seeking education bring with them new cultural trends which contribute in diversifying the culture of Australians. Perez-Cueto et al (2009) highlights that food is the most common challenge experienced by international students who visit foreign countries for the first time. Most of them experience difficulties in coping with the dietary styles of Australia. Loomes & Croft (2013, p. 489) indicates that there is no special program that keep an eye on new international students to make sure that they adapt to the Australian cultural system fast enough. Entrepreneurs have however established food cafes that provide distinct dishes that are coined to food cultural background of some of the foreign students. Contemporary research has revealed that many foreign students are forced to adapt to the Australian food in the long run due to lack of alternative.
Research indicates that eating habits are correlated to an individual’s culture as well as the social cultural environment. The length of time one stays in a specific social setting determines the change in his or her eating habits. Eating habits can be explained as the quantity of food consumed, the type of food consumed, amount and the style of eating (Riddell (2011, p. 728). Wandel (2008, p. 381) indicates that social structures such as schools contributes to modifying the food habits of people. The majority people holding a particular culture influence the cultural practice of the surrounding people. Loomes & Croft (2013, p. 491) indicates that international students studying in Australia are forced to adapt to the food habits of Australian students since they are the majority. According to Pereira, Larder & Somerset (2010, p. 939), the approximate time for acculturation is twelve months. The author indicates that African refugees in Australia spent close to twelve months to become accustomed to the Australian food styles. Consumption of foreign food is observed to be as a result of hunger rather than observing a healthy diet. Edwards, Hartwell & Brown (2010, p. 306) however indicates that foreigners whom food habits are close to the ones observed in the host country find it easy to adjust.
Recent studies indicate that new foreign students in Australia are straining to adjust with the food habits in the country. Change in food culture is one of the challenges faced by these students. Although it may seem simple, adapting to new food culture may have psychological effect on a person. New foreign students in Australia often suffer from social isolation as they are subjected to a set of new culture and people and especially food habits. This mostly leads to depression and loneliness. In a study conducted in Australian institutions of higher learning, more that 70 percent foreign students admitted to have experienced moments of loneliness and depression before adapting to the Australian social trends (Edwards, Hartwell & Brown, 2010, p. 309). According to Kremmyda (2008, p. 461), an individual’s ability to socialize fast with others determines the length of time taken before acculturation. Some students from foreign countries are very social and are able to build up relationships with native students fast enough. This enables them to learn many things about their cultural practices inclusive of food habits and ease their acclimatization process.

Methods
This study is intended to investigate the impact on food habits for international students studying in Australia. This section will outline the procedures that will be used to carry out the study.
Research Design
A research design refers to the systematic procedures that a researcher adopts to study the problem under investigation (Polit & Beck 2010, p. 94). A qualitative research design will be used in this study. Qualitative research explores individual cases and issues with the aim of answering practical questions and understanding concrete phenomena. The goal of qualitative research is to gain insight into the behaviour, attitudes, lifestyles, or value system of people (Robinson 2014, p. 26). In this case, qualitative design is the most appropriate approach to investigate the impact on food habits for international students.
Access to Participants
This study targets international students studying in Australia. The researcher will approach four international students studying at the university during normal school hours and hand them a letter requesting their participation in the study. The researcher will explain to them the purpose of the study and the reason for having picked on them. The researcher will select students from different countries to ensure diversity. Once they agree to participate, they will constitute the study respondents.
Data Collection
Data will be collected through qualitative interviews. The researcher will conduct structured face-to-face interviews with each participant. An interview guide with 10 pre-determined questions will be used to guide the interview. The researcher will use face-to-face interviews because they are the most appropriate approach for the study purpose. According to Ryan, Coughlan and Cronin (2009), individual interview is the most appropriate method that can help researchers gain insight into the experiences, understandings, and perceptions of people regarding a certain phenomenon. They add that individual interviews allow in-depth collection of data on the topic of interest (p. 309).
Sampling Strategy
Sampling is a vital aspect in qualitative research (Robinson 2014, p. 25). The researcher will use a convenience sampling strategy to select the sample. Convenience sampling is a non-probability sampling method in which a researcher selects the study participants based on convenience (Skowronek & Duerr 2009, p. 412). In convenience sampling, the researcher selects the sample for the study’s purpose because they meet a given practical criteria in terms of easy accessibility, availability at the right time, and geographical proximity. Convenience sampling is the most appropriate sampling design for this study because the researcher specifically targets international students at the university. It is the cheapest and the simplest method of non-probability sampling (Farrokhi & Mahmoudi-Hamidabad 2012, p. 785). However, convenience sampling can introduce outliers and selection bias in the study, which can affect the validity and reliability of study results (Hedt & Pagano 2011, p. 561).
Ethical Issues
The researcher will put into consideration the ethical principles when conducting the study. Ethical principles are necessary to ensure the good conduct of research involving human subjects (Polit & Beck 2010, p. 95). The ethical issues that will be put into consideration include respect for autonomy, beneficence, justice, and research merit and integrity. Respect entails acknowledging the intrinsic value of study subjects (Miller & Emanuel 2008, p. 765). The researcher will explain the purpose of the study to the subjects to ensure that they understand the nature of the study and provide informed consent to participate. The autonomy of the participants will be respected and those who refuse to participate will not be coerced. Only participants who provide written informed consent will participate. Those who opt to drop out of the study will be allowed to do so. Confidentially and privacy will be maintained and no information will be revealed without the consent of participants. Beneficence entails minimising risks and maximising the benefits of the study to participants (Polit & Beck 2010, p. 95). In this case, the researcher will ensure that no participant suffers any harm, intimidation, or coercion during the study. Justice deals with fairness in the conduct of research (Miller & Emanuel 2008, p. 765). In this case, the researcher will treat all participants and no one will be discriminated against during the study. The findings of this study will contribute better understanding of impact on food habits for international students studying in Australia.
Reflexivity
According to Heather, Joanna and Wendy (2012), reflexivity is improves the understanding of unspoken, embodied, or data that is not available to consciousness in qualitative research (p. 334). The researcher will keep a journal to record the daily activities during all the phases of the study. The researcher will remain as objective as possible and will provide accurate accounts of the participants. Tape recorders will be used for audio recording during the interviews to ensure accurate interpretation of participant accounts. The researcher’s beliefs or thoughts will not influence interpretation of the findings.  The researcher has the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct a credible scientific inquiry. This study will help highlight food habits of international students in Australia. However, it is acknowledged that as an interviewer and student at the university, the experience with food at the university may inform the researcher’s position, thereby introducing bias in the study. The researcher will be cautious and guard against this bias.

Interview 1

Question     Response     Data analysis
What is your view on the eating habits of local students?
Local students mostly prefer to have pre-prepared foods, take-away or meals from supermarkets/ canteen. These food items are easily available and very cost-effective making it the 1st choice of the students. Its easy to pick up a sandwich and rush to the classes as it saves a lot of time and can be consumed on the way.
Convenient – easy options for preparation and eating on the run
Why? Time management is an issue?
Do local students have $$ problems? Why isn’t family supporting local students? Where is the family? What are the local student traditions with food?

How are eating habits among local students different from those back home?

Students back home are more into the local traditional snacks and not into the international fast foods.

Is time not an issue back home? Why is time not an issue? Who prepares the food back home? Why do they prefer traditional food over convenient / easy / fast food?  Why is tradition important?
How has your eating habits changed since joining the university?
My international fast food consumption, like burgers, has increased tremendously. Back home I was more used to the home-prepared food, but since I live in the hostel and miles and miles away from home, this makes the fast food the 1st choice.
Moving away from family has changed habits – why doesn’t student cook for themselves? What is his ability cook?
What impact has the new environment had on your eating habits?
I have increased the consumption of potatoes and there have been a decrease in consumption of vegetables and fruits. This also meant that I have started to put on more weight. With the fast life of university one can hardly make time for eating. I have lost my habit of sitting and enjoying the food, as mostly I have to rush for the class or to the library to finish the assignment.

Are potatoes easy to prepare?

Obviously change in habits meant weight gain
Why not make good easy healthy options?
What is your view on your current eating habits?
My current eating habits are less healthy but more on the taste side.  Eating more fast food and red meat has taken me a step closer to the obesity line but I cannot disagree that I have discovered new flavor’s and new food items
Why less healthy food is more taste full?
Are fast foods tastier?
Why not go for tasty healthier foods?
Do you think fast foods the increase risk of obesity?

Where do you obtain your food?    Sometimes I do get the food from the supermarkets, which is pre-prepared and packaged and definitely on the cheaper side. Most days I survive on some food that I made in my home like make a sandwich. Otherwise, during the weekends I try to cook for my self or go to fast food restaurants.

Dose cost influences food choices?
Are foods from supermarkets and restaurants always cheaper?
Is home made food is more time consuming?
Why not prepare home made food most of the time?
Why you cook only at weekends?
What is the source of money you use to purchase food?    I receive money for my monthly expenses from my scholarship. As well as sometimes I get some money from my family

Finances determine food choices-Is the financial support the student receives adequate?
Why you gets extra money from family?
How often do you eat out with other?    Usually weekends are more relaxing times and we as a group of friends go to some restaurants to have a good time. But this is not every weekends may be twice in a month or so as I mentioned earlier eating out is quite expensive. Moreover, some of my friends encouraging me to have a lunch with them during the break between our classes    How do peer pressure influences food choices?
Why you thinking restaurant sometimes expensive?
Why not go for cheaper, healthier foods?
How does your interaction with peers influence your food choices in Australia?
Students in Australia are very warming and welcoming. Yes it definitely has an impact on my eating habits.  Also my peers have introduced me to a lot of new things. It is a different experience in totality.

Why Do you think that behavior of peers has effect on eating habit? How can introduction to new things an impact on experience? Peers influence food choices of international students-in what ways are local foods better?
How has your eating habits been changed with your study?
My eating habits haven’t really changed with the study but mostly with the change in the environment and culture in Australia. I do have developed a special liking to coffee to give me more attentiveness while studying. I also sometimes skip my lunch or breakfast.
How is change in eating habits a good experience? Bad?
How is the local culture and environment different from that back home? What makes students skip meals?

Interview 2
Questions     Response     Data analysis
What is your view on the eating habits of local students?

In Our University local students are not very much concerned about eating habits and healthy lifestyle. Students prefer to have outside ready to eat foods which have more calories but very less Nutrition value. They depend a lot on coffee, soda and packaged fruit juices.  Their water intakes seem inappropriate and they skip meals a lot. Fruits and vegetable intake is very low in their daily diet. Fast food, Junk food and very less physical activity is prevalent in their lifestyle. These non-home-cooked options are now a permanent and important part of how they eat, but there is little intention to cut down on these options to improve health and wellbeing.

Why the students are not concerned about healthy diet? It’s hard to cook? Time consuming?
What causes them to eat outside? Home-cooked food isn’t available to them? Is there study burden on students?
Why students prefer fast food over vegetables and fruits?
Low water intake? Students prefer drinks or juices?

More fast foods-is availability the determining factor?
Why can’t students prepare home made food?
How are eating habits among local students different from those back home?    Our food is very different from the Local Australian Students. I belong to Saudi Arabia. Our foods consist of a special preparation that I can’t see many students have different types of food especially during study period. We also love to eat fast food but that is not more than three times a week. Australian local students skip meals, and they prefer to eat packaged food. Convenience is the biggest factor governing Food habits of local students. They prefer junk and fast food over healthy food. Water, fruit and vegetable intake is very low in local students here.
What way the local food differs from the food back home? Food back home consists of a variety-are they healthy?
Why convenience –are fast foods more convenient?
Local students kip meals-why is this so? I time a factor?
Why convenience is the major factor of eating food among students? Shortage of time?
What is special preparation of your food?
What makes it special? Why you prefer your home cooked food to local Australian food?
What kind of food student prefer in study period? Easy available pre prepared?
Students are lazy? What attracts in fast food than on home cooked?

How has your eating habits changed since joining the university?
After joining university our schedule have changed drastically. Now also we are trying to cope with the changed lifestyle. We do not have ample time to prepare meal our self. So depend a lot on junk, fast and ready to eat food items. Our water intake has gone down a lot. I do not take balanced meal now and my present diet lacks Nutrients.
How study schedule demands more time?
What was your back home schedule of eating? What kind of changes had been came to you?
Why there is not enough time to prepare your own meal? Busy in studies? Who made food back home?
What you use instead of water? Drinks, beverages?
Why lack of adequate time to prepare food?
Depend more on fast, junk food, with poor nutritional value-why so?
What impact has the new environment had on your eating habits?
New environment has affected my food habits immensely. I have to eat most of the time junk and fast food from outside. Due to my classes I have to get up early and rush to university so breakfast is always very light and sometimes I skip meal also meals and eat at erratic times.

How was your eating habit back home?
What kind of food you were eating?
Why the student eats more fast food now-is time limited?
Time-no time to prepare food due to class work.
Skipping meals is common-why so? Is it due to cost or lack of time?

What is your view on your current eating habits?
I know my current eating habits and not healthy. I eat junk, fast and packaged meal a lot. My food is high in calorie value but it lacks Nutrients. I have gained 2 kg after joining the University. My eating time is not fixed which leads to overeating in the evening time. My water intake is very low and I take lots of caffeinated and aerated drink’s now which have adverse effect on my health.     How you think that your diet is not healthy?
Gained 2 kg weight? It is obvious in over eating and fast food?
Why you don’t prepare you own food? Busy schedule?
Why you prefer to eat fast food?
what was your eating habit back home? Eating in restaurants?
Why you drink caffeinated drinks? What causes you to drink less water?
have high calories and cause weight gain.
Very low water intake, why so?
Taste seems to influence since students prefer beverages- are they tastier?
Where do you obtain your food?
Sometimes I am trying to make my food at house but due to lack of time I mostly depend on ready to eat, packaged or junk food. So I eat at cafeteria at university, fast food junctions, Junk food, chips ready to eat from local store.
why not do this most of the time?
Why lack of time limit the ability of students to prepare home-made food?
Why obtains fast food from university cafeteria, local store, and fast food joints-are these readily available?
What is the source of money you use to purchase food?
In the last four years I was getting support from my government as a scholarship but in this year as it the last my family supporting me financially, because I finished my scholarship period.
Why they stopped to support you?
Why, do you mean students have money problems when overseas? How is the money adequate to meet all the needs-can it influence eating habits?
How often do you eat out with other?
Due to my university schedule I take my lunch with my friends and sometimes dinner also outside. I eat minimum 5- 8 meals per week outside.
How the university preventing you?
How does it influence eating habits? why students prefer eating out with friends? How does this affect eating habits?
How does your interaction with peers influence your food choices in Australia?
I am now in multicultural environment and when we eat out we try to experiment a lot. I enjoy food more now and love to experiment with different food items. But my gained weight is definitely a warning to shift towards healthy eating
How are the culture influence food choices?
How is the local culture different from that back home?
When you do experiments on food eating weight gain is a clear indication?
Why you do experiments on eating food? Back home you were not doing experiment?

How has your eating habits been changed with your study?
My habits changes slightly because I am waking up early morning, so most of the day I skip my breakfast, but in the first year I was trying to wake up early and make some food, but at the moment my schedule has been disturbed, obviously my habits changed to unhealthy food. Convenience has become the major factor in my diet other than healthy eating habits.
Why study schedule-do students lack time to prepare meals? Why skip meals?
Why your schedule had been changed at present?
Why convenience-are fast foods more convenient for students?
How long does it take to prepare a healthy meal? Can the student cook?
How would you best describe a healthy diet? do  you skip  your breakfast more than once in a week? Study stress or physical in activity?
Do you know the importance of healthy diet? Or just convenience is important?

Results
The results for these interview suggest that international students studying in Australia has received a considerable impact on the nature of food habits they are to possess. A number of themes –as emerged during the interview- can be linked to explain these impacts. One is time: As studies were, and for most of the students still are the main reason why they are in these foreign land; it is most probably that they spend most of their time studying and finishing school assignments rather that finding ingredients and spices for making their own “healthy” food, and hence, opt for “pre-prepared, take-away meals” which are rather unhealthy. Regarding this, Mamdouh says, “It is easy to pick up a sandwich and rush to the classes as it saves a lot of time and can be consumed on the way.”Clearly showing how the time factor affects their ability to the type of food they take.
The second theme that constantly emerged during the interview was money and the ‘costs’ attached to the different food types. A common fact found among all the students which could be a relative negative implication to the health conditions of each of the participants is that fast food are cheaper. Funding and money sources for student overseas seem to be a common factor. Fasial, for example, says that now he has to get all get cover for all his expenses from his parents back at home since he never receives scholarship funds anymore. Mamdouh on the other hand says that foods from the cafeteria are easily available and apparently, “cost effective” –making it the first choice. Barely, this is the prime factor for international students opting for junk foods rather than home-made foods. However much they would love to have a taste of individually cooked home-made foods, it becomes next to impossible. These students are “miles and miles” away from their homes, a case where they cannot just fly home daily only to get a taste of some home-made food. Furthermore, most of them live in hostels where cooking is rather impossible.
Then there is the issue of change? International students, as seen, are in a far different culture compared as to the ones they had back at home and, of course, change is the very immediate friend they get to make. They get exposed to a culture where fast-junk foods are the first option, and what do they have to do? Simply fit in into this new culture and opt the same foods as their foremost option too. Renga, all the way from Zimbabwe stresses the change factor saying his eating habits have “changed completely from health to unhealthy, also from regular to irregular and that impact my health and reduce my weight.” Too unfortunate that it has adverse implications to his health, but then, there is nothing in this world that is constant except for change and everyone has to merge with it.
Finally, the students clearly stressed how their eating habits are as a result of individual preferences and conveniences. Fast foods turn out to be irresistibly enjoyable and most of them now prefer to have this stunning taste to their mouths most of the times. Jea says that he now “prefer beverages, ice creams, junk food and easily available food and prepared food like sandwiches, rolls, and snakes.” For some students, it is just their nature to keep on trying some new foods, and as a result get more attracted to them more than ever before, completely taking preference off the traditional-healthier foods to fast foods.
