This paper examines the students' studying at an Australian university and

their self-efficacy associated to academic discourse. Further, it investigates

the relationship between self-efficacy and students' linguistic and cultural

backgrounds. The paper introduces the background concepts of self-efficacy

and of the internationalisation of the Australian education. Next, the paper

describes the research project, presents and discusses the results. The paper

ends with conclusions and recommendations for teachers working with

diverse classes.
