Using Life in Transition Survey 2010 (LiTS II) household data by European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and World Bank, I try to analyze what are the main “drivers” of getting higher education (HE) in Uzbekistan. The motivation for the current topic arises from increasing demand for HE in Uzbekistan. I resolve endogeneity problem by using consumption as a proxy for income. Probit estimates showed that family related factors, particularly household size and wealth of a household are the main drivers of the demand for HE. One’s age is also significantly associated with pursuing university degree. In line with previous research results, parental education also plays a significant role in children’s achieving HE.
