Abstract

The purpose of this research was to examine the direct and indirect causal influence of activity participation and learning outcomes, according to the National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, on fulfillment of academic goals by international university students. Data were collected by using a questionnaire from 315 international university students. The data showed that the research conceptual framework and the empirical data were consistent with the rigorous conditions nominated. The findings showed that participation in student activities had a direct influence on the National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education learning outcomes, while the learning outcomes had a direct influence on fulfillment of students’ academic goals.  Recommendations were made, as well as suggestions for future research.
