In this study, the relation between science student teachers’ approaches to studying and their attitude to reflective practice were investigated. The participants were 345 science student teachers on teacher education course during 2015-2016 academic year. The data was collected through Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students (ASSIST) and Student Teachers Attitude to Reflective Practice questionnaires. Pearson correlations and multiple regressions were used to analyse the data. The study found that the participant science student teachers’ approaches to studying were significant predictors for their attitude to reflective practice. The findings have important implications for student teachers’ professional development while they are training to become teachers.
