We investigate motivational factors for studying physics in Australia through interviewing eleven international physics PhD students at a research-driven Australian university. They are academically competent and enthusiastic and likely to be different from the majority of undergraduate international students. This may provide different perspectives about young adult international learners who are underrepresented in the higher education literature.
