It is frequently suggested by researchers that students are required or expected to adopt autonomous learning behaviours from the outset of entering university and it is also a trait highly prized by employers. Railton and Watson (2005) maintain that university students should be made aware that the development of autonomous learning is directly associated with their levels of achievement. Despite having received most of its research attention only since the 1980s, Little (1995) asserts that within formal educational contexts, learners who are successful have always been autonomous learners.
