FLEITH, Denise de Souza; GOMES, Cristiano M. Assis; MARINHO-ARAUJO, Claisy M.  and  ALMEIDA, Leandro S.. Expectations of Professional Success of First-Year University Students: A Comparative Study. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.3, pp. 223-231. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to investigate the expectations of professional success of first-year university students, considering gender, mode of entry into the university (universal or quota system) and type of student (worker or not). A total of 6,913 students from a Brazilian federal public university participated in the study. The Brazilian Scale of Academic Expectations for First-Year University Students was used, which evaluates seven factors: Quality Academic Development, Social and Academic Commitment, Broadening of Interpersonal Relationships, Opportunity for Student Exchange and Internationalization, Expectation of Professional Success, Concern with Self-image, and Development of Transversal Competences. For this study, we considered the data related to the Expectation of Professional Success factor. The results revealed a higher expectation of professional success among female and non-working students, which can support higher education institutions in the creation of strategies and services that contribute to the professional future of students considering the different student profiles.

Keywords : professional aspiration; higher education institution; psychological evaluation.
