Universities often study the broad characteristics of students who have migrated to their state for educational purposes. This provides them with opportunities to collaborate with the state government in order to introduce educational policies which can influence the students’ migration decisions. While there already exist studies that focus on the determinants of student migration, this paper uses the logistic regression model to assess the probability of choice of private universities while using primary data collected from students who migrated to Karnataka. This paper also tests various hypotheses and finds that the admission quota has no significant effect on the choice of private university among migrant students.
