This paper elaborates the topic of time management and environmental choice in studies by students of public and private institutions of higher education in Kosovo. Most students find themselves in front of the biggest challenge that is adapting to student life and achieving success during the studies. To succeed in this field is necessary to manage time effectively. This is especially important for students who often work or deal with other issues such as care for children, family and other responsibilities. Once they find the time to study, they need to provide a place that fills their needs. To do that, they have to make sure if studying place fits with their style and studying preferences. The purpose of this topic is to present how students in Kosovo manage their time during studies in front of many activities for reaching sucess during the studies and finding environment that fits their style of studies. The paper consists by two part, theoretical part that explains theoretical aspect of time managing and environmental choice during studies and relies in secondary and tertiary data using deduction method, where as in part two uses induction method and relies in data collected in ground by survey. During the research work, we used quantitative method where was drafted a survey, and were surveyed by 3100 students from 6 public universities and 3100 students from 20 private universities in Kosovo, in a total from 6200 students. Survey was drafted in that way where answers in our questions help to elaborate basic ideas or the hypothesis of this paper, and through their results to come to verification or denial hypothesis. The derived data are presented in graphical and tabular form. Findings of the paper are that the most of the students even manage activities within the limited time they have no knowledge about the process of time management but they do this activity as a routine duty and the environmental choice they do coincidentally. Time management is a necessary process to do activities on time and reducing pressure from not achieving results in due time. Also environmental choice affects the maximum results during studies.
