Based on Social Cognitive Theory and Learning Theories, the aim of the study is to analyze the relationship between learning self-regulation and self-efficacy beliefs in the dimensions of the academic goals of university students. The sample is composed of 231 participants belonging to a Chilean Public University, whose careers are associated with the sciences of economics, engineering, health, social sciences and humanities. The participants completed three self-report instruments with an approximate timing of 15 minutes. Three models were tested through linear regression analysis with the statistical package SPSS (v. 22.0). The results show that Model 1 (M1= Self-regulation learning and General self-efficacy to Academic goals) presents the best indicators to explain the academic goals in its sub-dimension learning goals, with an explained variance of 43%. It is concluded that the University must promote actions that support university students for designing their learning goals.
