In the last years, the Italian universities have experienced significant changes that involve the students and the universities' governance. Students' enrolment has decreased significantly especially after the economic crisis of 2008, while the students' migration from the South to the Central and Northern regions of the country has increased. This phenomenon has created further inequalities within the country and a cultural and socio-economic loss for the South. Important changes have pushed the universities also compete to attract students. Therefore, among the others, student migration is an issue that needs full consideration. In this paper, the attention is devoted to the First Level graduates that choose to enroll in a Second Level Degree Course provided by a different University. First part of the analysis concerns the investigation of the determinants of the First Level graduates at University of Palermo migration, and the second one concerns a study of the most likely attraction aspects of the universities in Italy. Although results are affected by the available information (above all the absence of economic status of the student’s family), they give interesting suggestion about the characteristics of the migrant student and on the strength points of attraction of universities.
