Abstract: 
In this paper, the nature of students’ approaches to learning is first described from a general perspective. Different theoretical and psychological perspectives regarding this and the
factors influencing the learning approach adopted by students are discussed. Following this, a
review of research focusing on students’ approaches to learning science is presented. This
includes the relationship between students’ approaches to learning and science learning
outcomes, and a comparison of deep and surface learning approaches in science. Finally, some
related issues and implications for curriculum practice in the science classroom are discussed.
