The research population was all the students of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, from those, 145 participants were selected randomly using stratified sampling method. The data was collected by Vark's questionnaire and then was analyzed by descriptive and analytical methods using SPSS software as a tool.

There is a significant difference between the learning style of undergraduate students with graduate degrees and Ph.D. students.
