The focus of this study was to examine the relationship between personality and self- regulated learning habits of university students in order to develop practical strategies for academics. The nature of the relationship between learning strategies and personality is still unclear as the existing literature contains inconsistent findings (Chamorro-Premuzic and Furnham, 2009). Using survey data (n=155) analysed using correlation and cluster analysis, the findings indicate that most personality variables do not have a significant correlation with self- regulated learning habits. The cluster analysis reveals that self-regulated learning habits are an effective way of grouping students. The conclusion is that teaching strategies should place emphasis on the students' self- regulated learning habits with a particular focus on the five segments proposed.
