While students come from diverse cultural and racially marginalized backgrounds, the higher education landscape remains predominantly Euro-centric. This study provides an analytical review of the extant literature using a postcolonial lens that concerns with the experiences of two socio-culturally and racially and socio-culturally marginalized populations - Indigenous and racialized international students - within formal Euro-centric post-secondary institutions. The study aims at identifying systemic barriers they face in three procedural areas: academic, socio-cultural, and psychological, and makes policy recommendations. Since Canadian scholarship is somewhat scarce, studies published in other contexts with significant proportions of Indigenous and racialized international student populations (e.g., the United States, The UK and other Western European countries, Australia, and New Zealand) were reviewed.
