Abstract
Higher education institutions have a responsibility to produce scholars who have good perceptions, attitudes and lifestyles in line with the concept of education for sustainable development (ESD). This study aimed to investigate the relationship between perceptions and attitudes with the lifestyle of prospective chemistry teachers. Questionnaires were given to 158 students consisting of 56 first year students, 47 middle year students and 55 final year students. The results showed that prospective chemistry teachers’ perception and attitude were quite uniform compared to lifestyle. The correlation between perceptions and attitudes towards the lifestyles of students in the first, middle and final year was significant (p value <0.05). However, the influence of perceptions and attitudes of students on their lifestyle was low. Thus, it can be concluded that there was a low correlation between perceptions, attitudes towards the students' lifestyles of different grades.
