A major survey looked into the motivation and experience of international students in South Africa and examined their geographic origins and fields of study. The authors identified “affordable fees, government subsidies for students from the region, proximity to home and cost of living, the strong reputation of higher education and currency of its qualifications” as the most important pull factors. Obstacles mentioned include support and adjustment challenges, but also xenophobic attitudes towards African students.
