Peer relationships play a key role in adolescence. Either indirectly or directly, these relationships
result in the need to act conforming with the peers’ demands, as can be noticed from
the decisions that the adolescents make and how they behave. On this basis, the aim of this
research is to determine whether and to what extent students are subject to peer pressure and
if so, what are the specific characteristics of the differences in susceptibility to that pressure
between the students studying at the Faculty of Educational Sciences of the Juraj Dobrila
University of Pula, Croatia and those at the Faculty of Teacher Education of the University of
Zagreb, Petrinja Department, Croatia (N = 440). The results show that students assessed very
little susceptibility to peer pressure. It is concluded that the characteristics of the setting did
not significantly affect the susceptibility to peer pressure of students who came to these cities
to study at the age of late adolescence, which is characterized by less susceptibility to peer pressure.
Among students of the observed faculties who were sometimes subject to peer pressure,
there are differences in the specific characteristics of this susceptibility, but they are also small.
Based on the obtained differences, it is concluded that the students of the city of Petrinja have
greater social control, and thus conformism, which students adopt to fit in. The paper contributes
to the insight into the extent of peer pressure in students, and also to the perspective
on differences in specific characteristics of susceptibility to peer pressure of students from two
related faculties, who are subject to it. Additionally, the fact that there are no studies of this
kind on the relationship of peer pressure within different settings, or are extremely rare, makes
an additional contribution of this paper.
