Abstract: The aim of this report is to describe the performance of tertiary educated non-EU born migrants and mobile EU citizens in EU labour markets by looking at two different measures of performance: non-employment rate and over-education. Using the latest waves of the EU-LFS for 2017-2018, we are able to determine differences in performances between 'local' and 'foreign' degree holders by region of origin. The descriptive results suggest that foreign degrees are associated with poorer labour market outcomes, but the extent seems to vary largely across non-native groups.
