According to Csikszentmihalyi (1990, pg. 4), flow is “an optimal, extremely enjoyable state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter...”. In this study flow has been measured with the Flow Questionnaire (Csikszentmihalyi & Csikszentmihalyi, 1988). The research was conducted on the sample of 200 students. The aim of this research was to determine whether there was a difference in the flow experience during studies among the students of the Faculty of Teacher Education (FTE) (Informatics, Primary education) and the students of the Faculty of Science (FS), Department of Mathematics (Teachers). It was also investigated which variables (knowledge and skills in computing science/informatics, subjective well-being) contribute to the more intense and more frequent flow experience during studies. Conclusions: There were no statistically significant differences in flow between students studying at the FTE and FS found, and the average flow during studies for both groups was M=4.93, measured on the scale ranging from 1 to 8. The proportion of the variance of flow explained by the inspected variables was 37.6% and it was statistically significant (F=20.68 ; df=6 ; p<0.001), but the only significant predictors were positive affect (β=045 ; p<0.001) and negative affect (β=-0.25 ; p<0.001). Students’ grades were used as means of measuring knowledge and skill ; however, it was found that they were not connected with the intensity or frequency of the occurrence of flow.
