Abstract / Description of output

This study examined the migration patterns and motivations of recent graduates from Scottish higher education. The principal aim of the project was to improve understandings of why some graduates leave Scotland to live and work elsewhere after completing their studies, while others stay in Scotland. The study aimed to add to academic knowledge about the motivations for graduate migration decisions, and in so doing inform policies which seek to encourage more highly skilled people to stay in Scotland.
