Student mobility in Russia became more widespread since the introduction of the Unified State Exam (the USE) instead of high school exit exams and university-specific entry exams. Such institutional transformation of the admission to higher education in Russia can widen the opportunities for the university applicants. Moreover, this would contribute to migration to the regions with highly developed higher education markets. The aim of the study is to estimate the determinants of the probability of decision to move in order to study in the university. The empirical part of the study is based on the data from nationally representative longitudinal panel survey, which started in 2011 with students of 9th grade and include the data of TIMSS (2011) and PISA (2012) international comparative studies. The Probit regression models were estimated separately for two types of educational mobility: internal (students move to another city within the same region) and external (they move to either neighboring or farther region). The independent variables include individual characteristics of university applicants, school and family factors, as well as institutional determinants, which reflect economic and educational status of regions. Also a linear model was estimeted to predicts distance of students mobility.
