The study was qualitative and content analysis was used in studying collected data. The study group consist of 5 students from Turkey, 4 students from Azerbaijan, 5students from Turkmenistan, 5 students from Mali, 5 students from Somalia, 4 students from France, 5 students from Guinea, total of 33 students who continue their education in undergraduate programs in Turkey. The data of the study was collected by structured interview technique. The students were interviewed at different times, and the answers that they gave to the questions were noted. Then the answers given to each question were tabulated and the students were coded according to the countries. The collected data were subjected to content analysis. In the result of the study, students' understanding of communication and conflict resolution seemed to be similar at some points and at some points differentiated. According to the results, the first communication in effective communication is family and friends.
