Abstract: The findings of some studies showed that many Nigerian students have defective study habits, which could result in little or no learning, and consequently to poor performance in examinations. The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of group counselling on the study habits of senior secondary school students; and to find out if the gender of the students would influence the outcome of the treatment. The sample for this study consisted of forty-five (45) senior secondary school students, made up of twenty-one (21) males and twenty-four (24) females. The students were randomly selected into two groups using the stratified random sampling technique. The treatment group was exposed to group counselling while the control group was expose to a non specific treatment. Two hypotheses were formulated and tested using the mean scores and the t-test. The results of the analysis of the data revealed that there is a significant difference between the treatment group and the control group at the end of treatment. This means that group counselling was effective in enhancing study habits. The result also showed that the treatment package was suitable for both boys and girls. Based on the findings of this study it was recommended that counsellors should employ the use of group counselling to enhance senior secondary school students study habits.
