The present study aimed to examine the leadership orientations of the students of the faculty of sports sciences. Leadership orientations of the participants; gender, age, class, licensed sports status and taking leadership lessons were examined in terms of variables. The Study Group consists of a total of 325 students, 171 females and 154 males, studying at Gazi University Faculty of Sport Sciences in the 2021-2022 academic year. The Multi-Dimensional Leadership Orientations Scale (MLOS), developed by Dursun, Günay, and Yenel (2019), was used to determine the leadership orientations of the participants. Before proceeding with the analysis of the data, the normality test was performed and it was seen that the data were normally distributed. While analyzing the data, "T-test for Independent Samples" was used for pairwise comparisons and "One-Way Analysis of Variance" test was used for comparisons with more than two groups. "Pearson Correlation" analysis was conducted to examine the relationship between the leadership orientations of the participants and the age variable. As a result; There was a significant difference between the students' leadership orientations and the variable of taking leadership lessons. A statistically significant relationship was found between age and leadership orientations. However, there is no statistically significant difference between leadership orientations and gender, licensed sports and class variables.
