The purpose of this research was to reveal the peculiarities of students’ professional vocation and the change of its importance through youth's vocational development entering the university. While trying to achieve this objective, firstly, the concept of professional vocation was analysed to define the relation of the notions of professional fitness and professional purposefulness with the notion of vocation. Moreover, the investigation of professional vocation's motivational, potential and character spheres and their elements was made.
