One-Way ANOVA test was used in the analysis of the place where the participants' grew up, age, university, department, class variables and LSD test was used to determine the significant difference. Pearson Correlation test was used to determine the relationship between academic self-efficacy sub-dimensions and a significant relationship was found.
