dc.description.abstractThis study investigated whether attachment styles and self-efficacy were related to quality of transition in first year university students, as previous research indicated an association between each of these concepts and socio-academic adjustment. Participants were 120 first year university students. They completed three questionnaires, the Relationship Structures (ECR-RS) Questionnaire to measure attachment anxiety and avoidance, the Self-Perception Profile for College Students Questionnaire to measure academic competence and social relationships, and the First-Year Experience Questionnaire (FYEQ) to measure socio-academic adjustment to university. Results showed multiple significant correlations for each variable across all sub-scales and significant variance in linear regression analysis. Both attachment and self-efficacy predicted quality of transitioning to university. Further research is needed to determine the potential influence of other variables, such as differences between young and mature students, or cultural divergence. Keywords: attachment, self-efficacy, academic, social, adjustment, students
