This study explores the re-entry adjustment experience of NRI student returnees or repatriates who have lived for a minimum of 2 years in their respective expatriate nation. It is specifically concerned with the socio-psychological problems and dilemmas that these students have faced in their own lives after returning to India. The study intents to find out how these returnee students have interpreted and have adjusted to their overseas experiences after their return. To aid this research, a concise questionnaire was prepared, which over 100 returnee students have responded. The results showed varying degrees of re-entry shock and readjustment difficulty, which could be the potential consequence of the student's own feelings of marginality and alienation. The degree of difficulty seems to have been strongly rendered by Indian culture. The result hopes to help returnee students to locate the main sources of their stress and facilitate the development of strategies for coping with reverse culture shock.
