A MODEL FOR THE REPRESENTATION OF MOBILITY OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ON THE ITALIAN TERRITORY

By Andrea Genovese

Abstract

Recently, European education ministers defined some principles to create a common Higher Education Area. In Italy this reform process provided significant transformations of the national university system and of the students ’ mobility with a decentralization process characterized by an increase of university enrolment and of academic sites. In this paper we investigate the mobility of Italian university students using an adaptation of gravity distribution models. Results provided by the model are compared with official ministerial data, showing that the model can efficiently describe the students ’ mobility phenomenon
