Study requirements and instructor treatment as two constructs of satisfaction predicted surface approach, instructor treatment and attitudes towards study predicted deep approach, and attitudes towards study predicted achieving approach. In general, academic satisfaction directly affected students' approaches to learning as examined by structural equation analysis, particularly for deep approach.
