Résumé de la thèse

Aims of the project: The project addresses the following questions:

(a) How have the characteristics of the flows of international students to Switzerland evolved over recent decades?

(b) What are the motivations, aspirations, strategies and trajectories of students from the South who pursue tertiary studies in Switzerland?

(c) What kinds of mobility regimes (defined as the system of laws, regulations and policies that have an impact on student mobility) have been used by the Swiss government and by Swiss universities, and how have they influenced international student flows?

(d) To what extent do international students from the South become established as highly skilled workers in Switzerland, and how can this be explained?

Quantitative and qualitative research methods will be used.
