In simpler terms, this section will discuss the two questions of, "what have I found out?" and "what does this mean?"

In other terms, it will provide a university tailored findings applicable mainly for the usage of the University of Victoria. Furthermore, it will identify key results from student-based research that will provide a direct voice from Chinese international student body at UVic. All in all, this section will siphon through my research, decide if my hypothesis is supported or rejected and draw conclusions about Chinese international student success at UVic. Moreover, this will also allow suggestions for how the experiment could be modified/improved or provide space for future research
