Motivations for the Bessarabian youth to study in Romanian universities
This paper explores the decisions of Bessarabian youth to study in a branch of a Romanian university. We used data collected from individual interviews with 58 students. We find that uncertainty and the material constraints played a major role in their choice. We also identify some factors with relevant influence on the schooling decisions, such as the perceptions about the costs of education, the wage expectations, and the compatibility with the future profession.
