Abstract

The study is based on a doctoral dissertation which investigated the information seeking behaviour of Humanities/Arts international postgraduate students in public universities in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The study argues that internationalisation of higher education is one of the important transformation processes of developing countries. The study highlights the challenges international students face in satisfying both academic and personal information needs, and adapts Wilson's model of information behaviour to fit an African context for such students. The study recommends that a policy regarding information services to international postgraduate students should be formulated and communicated to all stakeholders especially key service providers.
