Abstract: The article deals with the main functions of education and related tasks. They are separated into groups stemming from the three aspects of education, viewed as a form, content and sense. At their base, also in three groups, the most likely motivating factors that young people are expected to share when applying for a certain university specialty, are brought out. So are the students who are already studying in the university. A questionnaire study has been held among the students from different specialties of Ruse University - engineering, health and humanitarian, so that their motivation for scholastic education may be studied. A correlation has been sought between the basic motives, brought forward by the students, and those ones, deduced on the basis of theoretical research.
