The paper provides information about the experiences of students who have been exposed to different international physiotherapy education systems
Please see my reviewer comments below:
Add a reference at the end of the first sentence. The last sentence of the first paragraph is lengthy divide into 2 sentences to improve the flow.
To link paragraphs 2 and 3 firstly state that Asian students have challenges before highlighting the challenges experienced by the students.
When was the data collected?
As part of the inclusion criteria you mention that the students have previously been exposed? Did you consider length of time of exposure?
Include the type of sampling applied.
Add details about how the participants were accessed, specific location of data collection, who collected the data, how long were the interviews.
As part of the findings would it be possible to add information about the participants or would this affect anonymity.
It is not clear what the “past experiences and future dreams” were that was included as part of theme 2.
As part of theme 2, it is also stated that “this was a more Western style of learning…” it’s is not clear what is being referred to here, what was a more Western style of learning.
In theme 3, clearly state what the obstacles and opportunities were.
As part of theme 3 also indicate who experienced the “additional stress”
In the first paragraph the authors refer to “differences in pedagogical approaches…“. This aspect was not clear in the findings.
It is not clear how the second paragraph in the discussion is linked to the study.
In paragraph 3 of the discussion, where you refer to a “student centred-approach..” link to the supportive role that was part of the findings.
In paragraph 4 of the findings discuss the specific challenges that were highlighted in the findings by the participants and not clinical training in general.
The conclusion of the study should be more aligned with the aim of the study.
