Abstract: The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationships between individual study work and lecturer support, and students' academic success, as well as the influence of individual study work and lecturer support on students' academic success. The mixed approach is the method used in the study. A random cluster sample of students and a purposive sample of lecturers, a structured questionnaire, and a semi-structured interview were selected to be used in the study. The study demonstrated that individual study work influences strongly students' academic success, meanwhile lecturer support does not influence it. At the same time, students' academic success has been explained strongly by individual study work and lecturer support. This study is one of a very small number of studies reporting similar results.

Keywords: individual study work; lecturer support; students' academic success.
