Abstract

Seit laengerer Zeit gibt es Studien, welche zeigen, dass die Wahrscheinlichkeit, ein Hochschulstudium zu ergreifen, von der Distanz zur naechstgelegenen Hochschule beeinflusst wird. In dieser Studie wird neu gezeigt, dass die Distanz zur naechstgelegenen Hochschule auch einen Einfluss auf die Faecher- und Institutionenwahl hat. Diese Befunde sind auch deshalb interessant, weil der Distanzeffekt bei diesen Fragestellungen einem deutlich kleineren Endogenitaetsrisiko unterliegt als bei der Analyse der Studierneigung. Zudem zeigen die Ergebnisse, dass bei Studierenden aus der obersten soziooekonomischen Schicht das Studierverhalten nicht durch die Distanz beeinflusst wird, was als weiteres Indiz dafuer gewertet werden kann, dass die Distanz zu einer Hochschule tatsaechlich ein Ausdruck unterschiedlicher Kosten eines Studiums ist.
