In this paper, we analyse the employment–migration behaviour of 13,753 UK university graduates. In particular, we distinguish between five different types of sequential migration behaviour from domicile to higher education and on to employment. By controlling for a range of variables relating to human capital acquisition, local economic conditions and personal characteristics, we are able to identify the role of ethnicity in determining the interregional migration behaviour of university graduates.

Additional Information: The paper analyses the sequential migration behaviour of UK graduates from domicile to university and then into first employment. Our results suggest than non-Whites are much less mobile than Whites between domicile and higher education. This affects their subsequent migration behaviour possibly impacting on long-term earnings potential.
