Abstract
The research study assesses the inter-relationship between academic mobility and interculturality of African students in higher education institutions in Africa. My interest is skewed to academically mobile students in Africa because a large focus is on the Global North. A significant amount of research has been majorly focused on African mobility to the Global North specifically in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, etc. with little research on the mobility in the African Continent. The study seeks to address concerns on whether there is an interrelationship between the academic movement between Africa students and how an individual acquires intercultural competence in an internationalized institution. This is because there are concerns about whether studying in a multicultural environment guarantees that the individual will learn the necessary skills that will help them within and outside their environment.
