Over the past decades, the education paradigm in Indonesia has been shifting from the teacher-centered to the student-centered learning, including in higher education institutions. In student-centered learning (SCL), students are expected to be independent, active, as well as to be responsible for their own learning progress. The right implementation of SCL will bring active learning to not only inside but also outside the classroom. The University of Bengkulu shows its high commitment in achieving a high quality of education by organizing a training focusing on the implementation of active learning called ALIHE (Active Learning in Higher Education). However, this training is only for lecturers, not for the students. Meanwhile, the students who are actually the subject of the teaching and learning process do not get similar training. There is therefore a need to develop a similar program for students. This paper serves as a preliminary study in developing a training program of active learning for freshmen university students. It discusses the needs analysis from the students and lectures perspectives, covering: 1) students' learning strategies, 2) students' interest in learning, 3) students' learning difficulties, and 4) lecturers perception toward active learning. At the end of the paper, the implication of the result of this study is discussed.
