Introduction. One of the elements of a teacher's professional qualifications is the ability of actualisation of one's own requirements and opportunities. The objective of the present research was to study the tendencies behind self-actualisation of the physical education students and the attempt to determine the conditions accompanying the process. Material and methods. 1036 Physical Education students graduating from BA and MA studies, participated in the research. Diagnostic poll method utilising Witkowski AS-3 Self-actualisation Scale survey was conducted for the purpose of the research. Results. The highest results were achieved by the examined in the following scales: realistic approach, ability to experience ecstatic experiences, openness in emotional relationships, exclusion of social stigmas. The lowest self-actualisation was identified in task orientation, the need for seclusion, and inner-containment. Sex, the year of studies and hobbies, in terms of statistics, significantly differentiate the majority of self-actualisation dimensions. Conclusions. The graduating students undertake the effort of self-actualisation. However, many of them are at the beginning of the process. Women demonstrate a higher level of disposition towards self-actualisation than men. The tendency increases as the student progresses in his/her education but also grows in people with various hobbies.
