7. The figures tell the story

Lyceums are becoming increasingly crowded to the detriment of technical and vocational schools. In six years, the number of students signing up for lyceums in Veneto has risen by 37.5% (Italian figure: 27.5%).
The number of students registering at Veneto universities has started to increase again. More than 18,700 first-year students registered for the 2007/2008 academic year, up almost 2% on the previous academic year; the most popular faculties are Economics, Arts and Humanities, and Medicine.
The number of young people from other regions and international students is also rising. Last year, 18.4% of the students came from outside Veneto, while 3,900 international students also registered; the latter account for 3.7% of the total number of students, compared with 2.9% in Italy.
After a noteworthy increase in first-year registrations in the early years of the university reform, in 2007/2008 the number of Veneto students made up 43.5% of the population aged 19-years old, almost four percentage points lower than the 2001/2002 figure.
Overall, more than 111,300 Veneto residents attend university; the majority study in Veneto, but there are many who prefer to go elsewhere. The most coveted destinations among Veneto first-year students are Emilia Romagna and Friuli Venezia Giulia, with the most popular faculties being Law, Engineering and Economics.
There are almost 21,600 Veneto graduates, about 59% more than in 2001, equalling over 7% of the national total; the majority have degrees in economics and statistics, or engineering.
New graduates often have difficulty finding a job; consequently many young people decide to move away in search of a better future. Five years after graduating a 2008 survey revealed that 89% of Veneto graduates had studied and now worked in their local area, 2.8% worked abroad, almost 7% had moved to another region in the North, and 1.3% to the Centre or the South.
