Hello, my name is Catherine and I’m a provisional organisational psychologist. As part of my Masters in Organisational Psychology, I am completing a study that explores the experiences and needs a person may face as an expatriate whilst living and working in a foreign country. Having been a member of an expatriate family myself, I have a strong interest in this area of research. I am interested to hear from expatriates located in a variety of locations, and am particularly interested to hear from expats in the UAE.
I am looking for people that have been sent by the organisation in which they are employed, to work and live in a foreign country for an extended period of time (a minimum of a 12 month assignment). Participants should be aged between 18 and 65 and currently be on their international assignment. Participants must have been sent by their organisation on this international assignment. Furthermore, participants must have already completed at least 6 months of their international assignment.
Participation in this study involves completing an anonymous online questionnaire. The questionnaire includes a series of questions regarding your experiences, social support, personal and work values and demographic details. If you would like to participate, the questionnaire should take around 10 – 25 minutes to complete. The direct link to the questionnaire is
