Teachers and researchers from many countries each year express their thoughts on the relationship between the educational process and the student's research activity. Different approaches to understanding this problem confirm its relevance. There are a lot of publications on this subject. They concern both the problem as a whole, and specific approaches to its solution in certain areas of knowledge and practice.

The main purpose of our research is to identify the main factors affecting the academic success of students and their research activity. The studies were performed using the method of anonymous questionnaire for students (test 1) and for teachers (test 2). Each test was prepared by specialists in the field of practical psychology in accordance with standardized techniques.

The authors of this study have summarized the experience of teaching students at three universities which are localized in different countries (Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia). We took note the educational results of about a three thousand students who had been studying at universities over the last five years. The obtained results were verified using algorithms and methods of statistical analysis. The influence of individual factors and aggregate factors on the final result was analyzed by the magnitude of the Pearson correlation coefficient (r).

For conducting the statistical analysis, we have formed a general sample from the total number of students. This general sample include the students with research activity and academic achievement on level above 75 % of the 100 % (the highest level). The obtained results indicated that only 17-23 % of the total number of students could be selected for research consort by the quality criteria of learn. Every year this indicator tends to decrease both in general on a statistical sample, and for each University from the taken for analysis in particular.

Among the basic aspects about study academic and research activities of students we highlighted: the study of the influence of the student's personality on the process of education and its research activity; the role and content of the Curriculum for the student in his educational activities; the value of the teacher (tutor) as an integral and determining part in providing educational activity and student research activity; the strategic role of the university administration in increasing the academic and research activity of students.
