A number of studies show that studenents' approaches to learning are important elements to achieve success. Learning approache provides perspectives on the characterisics of good learners. Using R-SPQ-2F (Biggs, Kember, & Leung, 2001), a revised version of Biggs'(1987) Study Process Questionnaire (SPQ), this study attempted to explore the learning approaches of first year students of 2013 academic year at the Faculty of Language and Literature, of Satya Wacana Christian University. The purpose of the study was to find out if there was a correlation between the students' approaches to learning and their achievement in the Integrated Course (IC), and the profile of their approaches to learning English in the first semester. From 151 respondents participated in this study, it was found that, although weak, there was a positive correlation between students’ achievement scores and Deep Approach and a negative correlation between their IC scores and Surface Approach. This study also found that Deep Motive was associated with the students' achievement. However, from the findings of the students' profile based on SPQ indicated that the study could not predict the students at risk. Other factors could have affected the students' achievement in their learning.
