Numerous studies, most of them involving adolescents and adults, have evidenced a moderately positive relationship between self-efficacy and quality of life (QoL). There are, however, a limited number of studies that have addressed the mechanisms underlying this relation. Thus, the objective of the present study was to examine the relationship between one’s perceptions of the capabilities (self-efficacy) and perceptions of one’s life and environment (QoL) among the students enrolled at the Faculty of Educational Sciences at Zarqa University. To achieve the objective of the study a sample of 120 male and female students was selected from the Faculty of Educational Sciences at Zarqa University. All participants completed two surveys that measure self-efficacy and quality of life. The study revealed a statistically significant difference between students in the self-efficacy level on the basis of gender in favour of male students. On the other hand, there are no statistically significant differences between students in QoL level according to their gender. In addition, there is a statistically significant positive correlation between self-efficacy and quality of life levels among the students enrolled at the Faculty of Educational Sciences at Zarqa University.
