University students still feel reluctant to pursue their course at the online platform (Gilbert (2015). On the contrary, students are also not satisfied with offline/traditional form of learning due to the pedagogical style in the classroom (Zhang et al., 2004). Multiple kinds of research have been conducted to find out the gaps and challenges between students’ attitude and form of learning but missed to work with personality traits, self-esteem, and self-efficacy with an attitude towards form of learning. The current study found that big five personality traits, self-efficacy and self-esteem make influence students attitude and their decision making process towards the form of learning. The study was conducted with 155 students from the Higher School of Economics, Moscow. These students were selected from Bachelor and Master’s program irrespective of their department. The data shows that self-efficacy is statistically significant with the online form of learning, and the same holds true for master’s degree students. It is also found that master’s degree students scored higher in conscientiousness, self-efficacy and self- esteem. The Cronbach’s alpha, Pearson t-test, correlation, regression analysis, and PROCCESS were used to check the significant relationship between all three psychological factors and found a meaningful relationship between attitudes towards form of learning by students` personality traits, self-efficacy and self-esteem.
