  My research project studies social support networks of international students, acquisition of resources in these networks and also finds how they are mediated. To be more precise, it examines the degree to which international students on an individual level choose among different support groups and prefer different media when communicating with them using ego centric social network analysis. Based on the network analytical support research with the data collected using an online survey, factors affecting transnational social support and also how relations, ties and networks as a whole are maintained by media usage will be found.
