Education is an important component of the life of every society member. Studying in educational institutions alone is not, however, enough in order to be successful. This is the reason why self-education has become widespread. The aim of this work was to study the implementation of the self-education principles in specialized education, focusing on the principles of regularity, consistency, the relationship between self-education with education and self-education with professional activities. This aim was achieved through a pedagogical experiment conducted in general secondary and higher educational institutions, as well as through surveys of pupils, students, nursery school teachers, school teachers and lecturers/professors. Statistical data on the dynamics of the teaching staff of educational institutions were analysed through mathematical methods. The experiment found that the introduction of methods that contribute to the development of self-educational competence, self-control and self-organization in educational institutions also has a positive effect on the academic performance of pupils and students. These methods improve cognitive activity and increase motivation of educational activities, social interaction and purposefulness, point out gaps in acquired knowledge and help to implement a differential approach. The study demonstrated that self-education should be consistent and regular, starting with general secondary education and accompanying specialists throughout their professional carriers. finding effective teaching methods that can be used in educational institutions at different levels and that contribute to the development of skills and abilities to independently improve acquired knowledge may be the subject of further research.
