One encounters many challenges during life which he/she must stand to and solve within a certain timeframe, and the tasks may be simple, difficult, complicated and uninteresting from a subjective point of view, neutral, appealing or attractive. The time of university studies is, in this context, a period during which a young individual must fulfil a variety of tasks related to learning and education. He/she should, for example, attend lectures, seminars and exercises, prepare and present seminar papers at pre-determined times, perform the duties necessary to obtain the individual credits, pass exams from the given subjects, know his/her learning style and, based on that, study in an efficient and independent manner. If a learner can not comply with the study-related tasks on time, he/she has a problem. The statements described above make it clear that a success in learning is also linked with personal qualities and skills, because many of them determine whether and to what extent a student will have a tendency to put aside the learning duties (procrastinate). The content of the word procrastination is not defined in a uniform way. Where experts agree is the fact that the numbers of procrastinating individuals have been increasing and that university students represent a notable share of this number. The situation regarding procrastination of the students of the VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava and the Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra has been investigated using a questionnaire.
