Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed among all students of Neyshabur University of medical sciences (220 persons) in 2012. For evaluating quality of life we used the brief version of the WHO's QOL scale (WHOQOL-BREF) in this study. Frequency, percentage, range, mean and standard deviation were used for descriptive statistics. Independent t-test, paired t-test, ANOVA and logistic regression model were used in SPSS16 software to analyze the data.
Results: 64.6% of students were females and 35.4% were males. The mean age of them was 20.78±1.46. The total mean score of students’ quality of life was 13.52±1.57. In four dimensions of quality of life, the lowest mean score was observed in Psychological health domain (12.12±1.48) and the highest was observed in Physical health domain (15.12±2.42). Location was significantly associated with social relationship domain (p=0.031) and overall quality of life (p=0.003) of students.
Conclusions: The findings of this study shown that quality of life of surveyed’ students wasn’t high and the most effective variable was location.
