Results: Descriptive analysis showed that students perception was good on teaching quality (77.36%), clear goals (59.43%), and learning ability acquired (88.68%). Meanwhile 68.87% of sample had unsatisfied perception on assessment and on workload (73.58%). The correlation of learning environment perception to learning approach revealed p value>0.05 which was not statistically significant. Qualitative findings showed the role of internal motivation in determining learning approach adopted by student. Internal motivation comprised interest in subject, previous knowledge, and self-esteem.
