Abstract

This study aims to explain aspects that can support and inhibit the students' learning concentration and academic achievement. Motivation is the driving force that enables a person to do what is desired. In learning and achieving academic goals, motivation is an instrumental element that elicits the students' eagerness in learning and completing academic tasks. This research employs quantitative descriptive method, by using data cluster random sampling technique. The subjects of this research are the students of Faculty of Psychology of U niversitas Muhammadiyah Malang who are taking the last semester of their study. Data were taken by using interview method. The data obtained in this study were analyzed by using descriptive statistical techniques. The results of this study reveals that the aspects supporting the students' learning concentration and academic achievement are: supports from the closest people, parental supports, goals and targets in the future, curiosity, interesting content of lecture, type of the course, the lecturer, self psychological condition, classroom atmosphere, home atmosphere, and belief in God. On the other hand, the aspects inhibiting the students' learning concentration and academic achievement can be more identified than the supporting ones. The inhibiting aspects are: self-condition (such as, laziness and procrastination), students' non-academic activities (such as, organizations and internships); unclear procedures of course implementation, homesickness, social media, lack of proper reading habit, interpersonal relationships with friends and boyfriends or girlfriends, self psychological condition, time management problems, overwhelming tasks, and transportation problems.
