Transnational student mobility is a major factor, which plays an ambiguous role in the dynamic process of international highly skilled migration. In this paper we try to attempt an approximate profile of the potential migrant student in Bulgaria, according to the migration incentives, intentions and expectations of highly educated young people from six reputable universities in the country. For this purpose a sample study is applied based on binary logistic regression analysis. Some of the conclusions contribute to a critical view and confutation of prevalent theoretical concepts in international migration. In addition, the model evaluates the impact of economic and other crucial determinants which have an effect on migration intentions.
