Abstract: In spite of international research on independent learning (IL) and self-managed learning (SML), self-regulated learning (SRL) and selfdirected learning (SDL), there still is a lack of studies in IL encountered by students in higher education and the relationship between SML, SRL, and SDL. Little is known about the IL content and why SML, SRL, SDL are applied. The purpose of the study was to explore the content of IL of students from science-related higher education study programmes. A descriptive correlation-based research design was conducted. Data were collected by a statistically validated questionnaire. The respondents were 569 students from science-related higher education study programmes from 10 higher education schools of Lithuania. Spearman’s correlations were applied for data analysis by using SPSS 16.0 for Windows. Findings revealed that the content of IL of students from science-related higher education study programmes consists of SDL, SRL and SML, with SDL type prevailing, and the SML performing the mediator’s role, thus SRL being the weakest component in IL. Such complex IL is not universally applicable to all students and all study situations, and study programmes. In conclusions is reported that the content of IL consists of SDL, SRL and SML, where SDL dominates, and the SML performs the mediator’s role, thus SRL is the weakest component in IL. While IL with the SDL, SML and SRL may enhance the quality of study programmes, there is awareness that such complex IL is not universally applicable to all students and all study situations. It is valuable to consider the students’ pragmatic preferences of science education, because this category of students prefers a teacher-managed approach in IL. This aspect should not be overlooked. From the research findings it is evident that for students the following components of SDL, SRL and SML are meaningful in the IL[...]
