Résumé
The aim of this study is to explore the characteristics and determinants of international student migration from Ghana and Senegal. This article relies on new longitudinal data collected as part of the Migration between Africa and Europe project (MAFE). The use of this dataset allows us to compare the sociodemographic characteristics of national and international tertiary students. We first construct a typology of studies, professional and migration trajectories which shows that tertiary students are not a homogeneous group, and that international students are composed of two groups with distinct careers and outcomes. Our analyses also show that the main individual and familial determinants of access to higher education are gender and the educational level of the father. Even though some of the determinants of access to higher education abroad are not the same for Ghanaians and Senegalese, they are related to specific socio-cultural and family characteristics for both populations.
