This article addresses the question of how great are higher education studentsâ€™ incentives to change study programs or institutions to improve oneâ€™s personal employability in the course of the higher education-to-work transition process. The posed question is addressed at a system level. Studentsâ€™ mobility between programs and institutions is referred to as â€˜student mobilityâ€™ and graduatesâ€™ mobility between jobs is referred to as â€˜early career mobility.â€™ The relationship between these two separate components of mobility is discussed in three different institutional frames: German/Finnish, Italian, and British. When depicting the relationship between the two components of mobility, the article also considers parallel phenomena such as prolongation of the degree-earning process and participation in work-life with student status. Indicator level analysis concerning graduates of the year 2000 reveals important differences between the three institutional frames: in Germany and Finland, there is a high level of student mobility at the basic degree level combined with a low level of career mobility after graduation; in the UK the opposite transition logic than that of Germany and Finland occurs, and in Italy students demonstrate prolonged transitions with little student mobility and early career mobility.
