In Phase I of this research, threats to Chinese international students’ mental health while studying in Australia prior to the onset of COVID-19 were examined. In Phase II, predictors of Chinese University Students’ mental health whilst studying either in China or Australia during COVID-19 were examined. Results indicated that Chinese international students experienced significant mental health threats while studying in Australia, even prior to COVID-19, and that Chinese university students in China had better mental health than their counterparts in Australia during COVID-19. This was mediated significantly by perceived discrimination. Various internal strengths were identified that may moderate these effects.
