Educational and occupational aspirations are universal traits. The formation of aspirations is a central developmental task in adolescence. In the Indian context, these aspirations are linked to different social status positions and opportunity structures. Both types of aspirations are influenced by academic achievement, which varies according to social origin and by significant others (e.g., parents, peers, teachers). So far, a researcher needs a broad and flexible point of view to explain when/how and under what conditions young people develop aligned aspirations. To understand the complexity of the processes underlying young people’s decision the present paper focused upon exploring educational and occupational aspirations in context of migration and study the patterns how this (migration) related to the achievement of these aspirations. The present research is descriptive in nature. We first describe and analyse the patterns of migration in relation to educational and occupational desires (i.e., highest educational degree they would like to obtain and their desired occupation they prefer / may choose) among senior secondary school students of Punjab. From the top three districts with higher number of student migrants the sample of 150 senior secondary school students is selected. The sample will be divided into 3 subsets A (Already migrated), B (Aspired & complete documentation) and C (yet to start documentation).Data collection done through the self-made questionnaire by the researcher that reflects two domains (i.e., pre migration desires and post migration aspired achievement of these desires) and then to explain the findings Sequential explanatory research design will be used.
