The aim of this study was to understand the influence of emotional intelligence and self-directed learning readiness on achievement and the influence of emotional intelligence on self-directed learning readiness of students who are in their first or second-year education in a foundation university in Ankara. The scales used are self-directed learning readiness scale and Schutte’s (2001) emotional intelligence. It was found that emotional intelligence and self-directed learning readiness were strongly correlated. Also emotional intelligence predicted self-directed learning readiness with very little support from gender. There was no relation between self-directed learning and GPA as well as emotional intelligence and GPA. Being from different departments did not have an influence on GPA.
