The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between the variables need for structure and reading comprehension skill in a foreign language. Specifically it aims to identify differences in the scores of examined variables in the following categories: foreign language (EN, DE) and faculty (pf, ff, fpv, combi). For this reason, research was carried out in which 221 university students at CPU in Nitra participated. The PNS scale (Thomson et al., 2001) and tests of foreign language competence were used. The results showed that desire for structure correlates with reading comprehension skill negatively in the case of students of the Faculty of Arts. Need for structure correlates with study years of foreign language negatively in the case of students of the Faculty of Education. Statistically significant differences were proven in personal need for structure and response to lack of structure between the students of the Faculty of Arts and Natural Sciences.
