The authors focus on attitudes of students of social work towards refugees. Knowing their attitudes is important because social workers play an important role in ensuring protection and adequate care of refugees. The theoretical part aims to conceptually and intellectually grasp the concept of public attitude towards refugees. It consisted of knowledge-based, statistical and baseline fundamentals of quantitatively oriented research, whose primary aim was to identify the attitudes of students of social work towards refugees and also identify the possible impact of selected demographic characteristics on this attitude. Methodological tool was the questionnaire of our own design in the form of semantic differential, one of the standard methods for measuring attitudes. The empirical part was divided into three steps. In the first phase, there was implemented a description of semantic differential and significant differences were described according to gender, place of residence, religion and study field. In the second phase, in order to clarify and simplify data that were collected the factor analysis was implemented, based on which three factors have been identified. In the third phase, there was a regression analysis implemented to investigate the impact of selected demographic characteristics on the attitudes in the context of the three factors.
