“Student mobility, university and post-university choices”
April 11-12, 2019
Università di Cagliari
The study of students' mobility choices has become a topic of great relevance in recent years, as it is closely related to the long run debate on the measurement of the quality of the universities and to the allocation of public funds. An analysis of the determinants of students’ mobility choices is a starting point for the building up of a fair system of evaluation of universities, the enhancement of education pathways that can contribute to the development of skills required in the disadvantaged areas and the redefinition of the policies for the allocation of public resources. The workshop is organised within the activities of the project "Students’ mobility in Sardinia. A comparative analysis of the tertiary education supply in Sardinia" with the aim to (i) analyse the phenomenon of student mobility and assessing factors that have the greatest influence on students’ university choices, (ii) to relate the education supply of the universities with respect to the student demand, (iii) to build a system of indicators that helps to measure the value-added for students to move for university studies according to the field of study, (iv) to inform students and families’ choices and (v) to provide policy-makers with recommendations to support university policies and the allocation of public resources. Contributions addressed to analyse students’ mobility choices and to measure university quality in terms of "attractiveness" and "effectiveness" in an economic, demographic and sociological perspective are welcome as well as methodological contributions which propose new or advanced statistical techniques for the analysis of mobility data.
