Abstract

Author(s): Fulya AKGL GK

The university is a new era in the lives of many individuals and this period may bring some difficulties. This situation also reflects on the students' life satisfaction. The aim of this study is to determine the variables that predict the life satisfaction of university students. This research has been conducted among 233 social work students between the dates of 5th of September and 17th of December 2019. In the study, the data were collected using face-to-face interview method, and socio-demographic information form, “Life Satisfaction Scale” and “Self-Efficacy Scale” were used to collect the data. SPSS 22.0 was used to analyze the data and Standard Multiple Regression Analysis was used to determine the variables predicting students' life satisfaction by taking the required arithmetic mean, standard deviation and percentage values. As a result of the research, economic variables, hobbies, academic success, future expectation and self-efficacy variables are significant predictors of life satisfaction; it was determined that the gender variable did not have a significant effect. Consequently, in order to adapt students to university life and changing conditions, interventionoriented studies should be done by determining the variables that affect students' life satisfaction by using various measurement tools at certain intervals.
