The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between self-regulation and study skills theoretically. In the literature, there are numerous articles which examine self-regulation, study skills and the relationship between these skills and learning strategies, and learning approaches. As a result of examining these articles, it is noted that there are similar aspects between self-regulation and study skills. These similarities reveal there is a need to examine the relationship between them in detail. Therefore, in this study, (a) self-regulation, (b) strategies to improve self-regulation skills, (c) study skills and (d) the relationship between self-regulation and study skills are examined. Additionally, on the basis of the relationship between self-regulation and study skills, in this study, the issues that need to be taken into heed when self-regulation and study skills imparted in the schools are also focused on. The results of this study are expected to shed light on the studies related to the attainment of these skills.
