Abstract

International students are important for higher education since they bring additional income for universities, enhance their ranking and reputation and might become high-qualified manpower for host countries in future. This research aims to extend the current knowledge through investigating the effects of disconfirmation, satisfaction and switching cost on attitudinal and behavioural loyalties of international students. A total of 410 Vietnamese overseas students answered our questionnaire survey. Using structural equation model, this study revealed that the mechanism resulting on attitudinal loyalty and behavioural loyalty of international students are different. While satisfaction is found as a partial mediator of the relationship disconfirmation – attitudinal loyalty; switching cost is found as a direct antecedent of behavioural loyalty. This article ends with implications in terms of theory and practice.
