dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to investigate if attachment style and perceived social support would predict loneliness among students. It also aimed to investigate if there would be a significant difference in perceived social support between international and non-international students. Furthermore, it sought to examine if there was a difference between international and non-international student on levels of loneliness. A quantitative approach was taken for this study using a cross-sectional, correlational design and a convenient sample. Participants were recruited online via social media platforms where they were asked to fill out a selfreport survey which contained scales measuring attachment style, perceived social support, and loneliness levels. 102 participants took part in this study. Inferential statistical analysis reported significant results for all hypotheses.en
