The aim of this study is to determine the success orientations and self-consciousness levels of the students in the higher education institutions providing sports education and to examine these according to some variables. The sample of the study consists of 202 students, 90 female and 112 male students, attending Gazi University Faculty of Sports Sciences at different departments and class levels. In the direction of the findings obtained in the research, it is seen that the participants got the highest mean scores from the “learning approach” and “learning avoidance” sub-dimensions of “Success Orientation Scale” (=3.80, =3.05). In this respect it can be stated that the participants are eager to improve their knowledge and skill levels, they take into account the learning process and try to avoid making mistakes. When the sub-dimensions of the Self-Consciousness Scale are examined, it appears that the self-consciousness levels of participants are above the mean (=2.22). This result shows that participants have awareness of their own thoughts and feelings and that they think more towards themselves in their daily lives. In addition, it was determined that the participants' success orientations did not show any significant difference according to gender, department, class and age variables (p>.05). Furthermore, self-consciousness levels of participants did not show any significant difference according to gender, department, age variables, but they were significance in favor of the 1st grade participants according to class variable (p <.05).
