dc.description.abstractThe present research study explores the difference in alcohol consumption of students between the time they are studying abroad and when they are studying in their home country, using the Alcohol Time-line Followback scale as a means of identifying these alcohol differences between the two time-points. It also determined their attitudes towards sexual activity using the Basic Sexual Attitudes Scale. The sex and nationality of these participants was used as a means of comparison, seeking which sex and nationality groups consumes more alcohol and had a more open towards different aspects of sexual activity. Results have found that males and those from Ireland and the UK consumed more alcohol, while both males and females had a relatively similar attitude towards sexual attitudes. A negative relationship was found between the alcohol consumption between the two time points and sexual attitudes. Author keywords: Sexual activity, alcohol consumption, studying abroad, studentsen
