Abstract

© 2018 Universitatea din Oradea. All rights reserved. This article analyses the perception of students from immigrant families of the favourable factors which helped them stay in school through the high-risk transition from compulsory secondary education to post-compulsory education. We specifically focus on identifying the individual, academic, family and contextual factors which promoted the persistence, retention and academic success of these young people, bearing in mind the risk factors stemming from their experiences of migration. Lastly, we shed some light on the ways migration has affected their progress in the school system.
