dc.description.abstractGiven the increasing rate of South to South migration and South Africa's leading role as a host for internally displaced migrants as well as Africa's international students, this study examined this intersection of international students who selected the country for political stability and safety. The findings revealed that while these students were generally more highly prepared academically, more satisfied with university facilities and staff, and experienced fewer academic hurdles than their international student counterparts, they encountered greater challenges in regard to finances, living support and discrimination. The study calls for clearer acknowledgement in policy and specialized support for refugee and asylum seekers' unique situations and needs.en_US
