Xinyi Ma, Min Hu, Donglou Li, Hui Wang


This study aims to explore the internal relationship between academic burnout, social support, and the life satisfaction of Chinese overseas students using the College Student's Learning Burnout Scale, the Social Support Scale, and the Life Satisfaction Scale to survey 167 international students. It is indicated by the results that the overall academic burnout of international students is at the upper-middle level, the level of objective support, subjective support, and overall social support of female international students is greater than that of male international students, but there is no significant difference in the utilisation of support between female and male international students. Social support has a significant and positive predictive effect on life satisfaction, while the relationship between social support and life satisfaction is negatively moderated by academic burnout.
