Abstract: This article concerns the case of Spanish women with higher education and their migration to the United Kingdom between 2009 and 2012. Based on an analysis of available statistical data and qualitative research (participant observation and 12 in-depth interviews), we explore the work and living conditions of migrant women. The results indicate: 1) that the number of migrants during the crisis is lower than previously thought and that, according to the available data, it cannot be classed as skilled migration; 2) similarly, that the socio-demographic profile is heterogeneous and, 3) that there are diverse economic conditions upon entry, often resulting in situations of vulnerability and social exclusion.
