The aim of the present paper is to provide a summary of a qualitative research completed from 2015–2016. The study analyses interviews with twenty Roma, Gypsy adults from the Southern Transdanubia region of Hungary who lived in segregated neighbourhoods or settlements. Despite sociocultural disadvantages, all participants have completed secondary or higher education studies and attend the same career orientation program between 1994 and 1999. Most interviewees are between the age of 35–45, come from Boyash (‘beás’) families and have either Boyash or Romungro parents, although in in some cases Olah backgrounds. The aim of this study is to contribute to research regarding the mobility and education of Roma population in Hungary and what factors support or hinder their employability and/or marketability.

Keywords: Gypsy/Roma adults, education and mobility, qualitative research, narrative interviews
