Abstract [en]

My purpose for this essay is to examine what factors are considered to have high influence on motivation to study and what measures can be taken to enhance student’s motivation to study from a student perspective.


The main source of theory for this study has been the classification of motivational factors that has been based on Herzberg’s twofactortheory with complementary theoretical sources.


The study is based around two research methods, one survey together with complementary student interviews. The empirical material consists of 118 completed surveys together with nine student interviews.


The study’s results have found that students find the main source of rising motivational level originates from the professional role of the teacher. Additionally the students find the main source of subsiding motivational level originate from rising level of stress and uninspiring teachers. Furthermore the study has found possible improving measures in lacking personnel, an working environment focused on studies and an education oriented on future career preferences.
