This study reports on an investigation into differences in learning orientations of EFL students at Atatürk University located in Erzurum, Turkey, using Vermunt’s (1977) Inventory of Learning Styles (ILS). The Inventory of Learning Styles (ILS) is an instrument aimed at measuring several components of student learning, namely, cognitive processing strategies, metacognitive regulation strategies, conceptions of learning, and learning orientations. This study focuses on determining patterns in student learning in only one learning style category: learning orientations. For statistical analyses, Mann Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis tests were used. No significant differences were found with regards to department. Some significant differences were present with respect to gender and class level.
