Multiple intelligences play important role in higher education learning. They classify individual preferences and strengths in learning and can be used for developing new ways of learning. Knowledge of teachers in multiple intelligence of students can help them better understand their students. And students knowing their dominant intelligence will find it easier to learn. This research is focused on the relationship between multiple intelligences among NEUST BEED students.
The population of 41 third-year Bachelor of Elementary Education students was selected as a sample. This is a quantitative approach and research data were collected using a questionnaire. The gathered data were analyzed using frequencies, percentages, and diagrams.
The result showed that the majority of the students tend to possess divergent learning styles with an emphasis on Intrapersonal Intelligence for the excellent level and Verbal-Linguistic for the low level.
