<bold>Introduction.</bold> One of the elements of a teacher's professional qualifications is the ability of actualisation of one's own requirements and opportunities. The objective of the present research was to study the tendencies behind self-actualisation of the physical education students and the attempt to determine the conditions accompanying the process. <bold>Material and methods.</bold> 1036 Physical Education students graduating from BA and MA studies, participated in the research. Diagnostic poll method utilising Witkowski AS-3 Self-actualisation Scale survey was conducted for the purpose of the research. <bold>Results.</bold> The highest results were achieved by the examined in the following scales: realistic approach, ability to experience ecstatic experiences, openness in emotional relationships, exclusion of social stigmas. The lowest self-actualisation was identified in task orientation, the need for seclusion, and inner-containment. Sex, the year of studies and hobbies, in terms of statistics, significantly differentiate the majority of self-actualisation dimensions. <bold>Conclusions.</bold> The graduating students undertake the effort of self-actualisation. However, many of them are at the beginning of the process. Women demonstrate a higher level of disposition towards self-actualisation than men. The tendency increases as the student progresses in his/her education but also grows in people with various hobbies.
