The aim of this study is to evaluate the quality of the academic life of Shahid Beheshti University students. The study is regarded as an applied research in terms of its objective and the data were collected through a survey. The resources were studied and semi-structured exploratory interviews were conducted so as to determine the essential components of the quality of academic life. The sampling was purposeful and the sample included 24 graduate students. A researcher-made questionnaire about the quality of the academic life was applied and its validity was approved by the professors of the educational sciences and its reliability was estimated at 0.94 by using Cronbach's alpha coefficient. Our population contained all Shahid Beheshti University students. Purposeful random sampling method was employed and 367 students formed the sample. To analyze the data, statistical methods (t-test single-sample multivariate analysis) were used. The results show that the quality of the academic life of Shahid Beheshti University is not favorable. All components of the quality of academic life- including the curriculum, research, sports and cultural services, medical services and counseling, scientific equipment, financial services, food, student accommodation, social cohesion, and the progress tracks- are not of sufficient quality. And only two Factors- faculty members and the general satisfaction- are favorable. Also, except the two components (equipment, research and development path) significant differences were not observed in the parameters of the quality of life at the different levels of education (bachelor, master and doctorate).
