Abstract: Issues and dilemmas in research ethics, as well as conflicts in cultural, political or democratic values can create unavoidable emotional feelings such as stresses for international research students conducting research in their home contexts. This paper presents two research students' emotional experiences in their data collection processes and the dissemination of their findings of the education research conducted in China and India, respectively. Given that their experiences are highly personal and anecdotal, their emotional well-being indicates challenges the students encountered. The paper suggests that institutions amend their support mechanisms to facilitate students to develop their own coping strategies.
