Sammanfattning: The aim of the present study was to examine how the academic confidence among first year and second year master students were affected by the students’ parents educational level. 47 students on advanced level completed a questionnaire examining self-efficacy (SE), a concept that Albert Bandura (1997) defined as the level of confidence individuals have in their ability to execute courses of action or attain specific performance results. The questionnaire also included questions regarding the students’ parents educational level, the students gender, age and campus. The results indicated that the students SE in no significant matter were affected by the parents’ educational level. Neither did the students gender or campus significantly affect their SE. There was a significant negative correlation between the age of students and SE, which showed that as the age of the students increased, their SE decreased.
