Abstract

This paper presents an empirical study focusing on students’ drop-out and irregular careers at the University of Sassari (Sardinia, Italy). The analysis is based on 1,167 students registered in a full-time undergraduate program (three years according to the Italian system), which have both not changed the faculty and not abandoned the degree course at the University of Sassari. Using a Probit model, our findings document the individual, background and environmental factors that play the main role in explaining the likelihood of irregular careers’ occurrence. Finally, some policy implications are discussed.
