This chapter examines the linguistic, academic and cultural challenges faced by doctoral students studying at an Australian university. The chapter uses survey and focus group data to present learner stories that provide insights into the impact on these students of their constructing an international student identity which, the chapter argues, is central to the pursuit of the academic autonomy they need to develop and exercise in order to manage effectively the postgraduate learning process.

Keywords:   identity, language learning, academic autonomy, culture, learner story, learning management
