The paper presents an exploratory survey focused on 8 transferable competencies in vocational education in students at secondary vocational schools and on their interest in studying at a university.

The paper aims to:
(1) find out a comprehensive order of transferable competencies among students of secondary vocational schools based on evaluation of subjective degree of acquirement of transferable competencies by the students,
(2) find out whether students of secondary vocational schools are interested in their further studies in technical fields at a university.

It was concluded that the students have acquired the following competencies to the greatest degree: Communication in the mother tongue, Sense of responsibility, Work with digital technologies, Teamwork. Another conclusion is that almost a half of the respondents (43 %) would like to continue studying at a university, namely mostly in the same or related field of study of their technical specialization.
