The present paper offers a description of the survey research, conducted in a mixed group of university students of different social background and gender identity. The survey research was carried out on the basis of two top Russian universities and involved 310 respondents. The purpose of this study was to explore the sociological aspects of university education based on certain self-identification and value orientations. In view of the purpose, the objectives of the study were defined as follows: (1) to determine the students’ employment expectations; (2) to clarify success factors as motivation for education; (3) to assess the students’ satisfaction with life. The students were asked to evaluate their life keeping in mind their social conditions, education, income and personal fulfilment. Life satisfaction research was measured by means of a numeric ranking index of happiness ranging from 1 to 100 points. The main research findings cover the educational strategies of generation Z in Russia, their ambitions and factors of success, their work habits and expectations of the future job. The research findings are described against the background of general social situation in the Russian Federation.
