Leaving to study or "choosing" to stay

This project offers to study the logics structuring the choices students make on the platforms in charge of matching candidates and higher education institutions (Admission Post Bac and Parcoursup), paying partcular attention to the comparison of the French Overseas regions with each other and with different types of regions in mainland France. This comparison will be structured by the density and desirability of the programs offered locally (with a reflection on the notion of desirability and its various possible measures); by the socio-economic profiles of student candidates and their selection within their age group; by the differentiated "migration cultures" that characterize these spaces, meaning the institutions, networks and representations that shape the aspirations and capacities to migrate of student applicants at the macro and meso-social levels.
