ENHealth education is one of the most effective ways to help a person to be and to stay healthy. Education of healthy lifestyle habits is considered as the main function and component of health education. Researchers found that the beginning of studying in higher education institutions is an acceptable time for changing and educating lifestyle habits. Unfortunately, the studies of foreign and Lithuanian researchers have shown that risky health behaviors, such as alcohol, tobacco and drug use, poor physical activity, poor dietary intake, and risky sex behavior are widely prevalent among higher school students. Such dataexpose the necessity of the scientific analysis of students’ health education in Lithuanian higher education institutions. The aim of the research was to find out possibilities and problems Lithuanian students’ health education. 1048 students from 7 universities 5 colleges were involved. Quantitative data were collected using a closed response questionnaire. The study results demonstrated that the most of the students understood the necessity of physical activity but only one third of men and one quarter of women considered themselves as enough active physically. The most popular motives of students’ physical activity were pleasure, desire to be healthy and to have a fit nice body. The most common obstacles for being physically active were the lack of will, time and finances. Approximately one third of the students in their curriculum had lectures where they got some knowledge about health and health education. Less than one half of the respondents had physical education lectures in their curriculum. Only 35 % of men and 22,8 % of women declared they had a possibility to use their schools‘ sport basis in their free-time. It is an eloquent fact that more than one third of men and half of women did not know about such possibility and were not interested in it.Consequently, the majority of students did not identify their alma mater as the institution, which is responsible and able to educate their health. In authors opinion, health education in higher education institutions could be improved in these ways: educating students about cheap and effective events of physical activity; improving the quality and attractiveness of physical education lectures; better informing students about possible physical activities in higher education institutions.
