Objective: a comparative analysis of the relationship of quality of life associated with health with academic performance and motivation to learn from students of humanities and medical specialties of senior courses. Material and Methods. The study was conducted at the School of Biomedicine of the Far Eastern Federal University and Pacific State University. The sample size is 516 students (51% girls). 272 (52.7%) students studied medical specialties; 244 (47.3%) — humanities. For questioning students used a comprehensive questionnaire self-assessment of socio-economic and medical status of a student of the University (Pozdeyeva, 2008), the questionnaire MOS SF-36. Academic motivation was assessed on the scale of Т. О Gordeeva and O. A. Sychev (2014); academic performance — according to the semester statistical reports of the relevant departments and faculties. Results. The total indicators of physical and mental health in the assessment of quality of life associated with health among students of medical and humanitarian specialties did not differ significantly, although the assessment of their quality of life by humanitarians was slightly higher (67.1/64.1; p>0.05). It was found that strong relationships are characteristic of variables: learning conditions (r=0.89, p<0.05); academic performance and motivation to study (r=0.75, p<0.05; r=0.79, p<0.05); the presence of bad habits (r=0.77, p<0.05); self-assessment of physical health (r=0.67, p<0.05). Conclusion. The quality of life associated with health at students of medical and humanitarian specialties is interconnected by motivation to study and progress, and also a number of variables of the social and economic status and morbidity.
