Abstract: This paper deals with learning to learn as a key competence and importance of student’s goal setting. Before understanding this competence we have to understand learning. Learning as a process is determined by individual and social factors. If we want to understand the connection between competence learning to learn and learning goals setting, we have to understand self-regulation learning, this is a way of learning that enables to develop the competence learning to learn. Individuals have different interpretation of learning theories. In this paper we will deal with student’s perspective of how they are setting their own learning outcomes or goals. We focused on researching what are student’s learning goals and desired learning achievements or outcomes. We asked them about priority goals or academic achievements which they want to achieve before they leave the faculty and what methods they and their lecturers should use to achieve these goals. The results imply that students are very aware of the importance of their own learning goals setting. They highlighted desired learning achievements or learning goals which are: a broader view on knowledge, the ability to acquire knowledge, the ability to transfer knowledge, the ability to transfer theory into practice, a good knowledge of methodology and the ability to work in teams and communication.
