Abstract: Purpose: The goal is to create a well - being measure that effectively captures students' Quality of Life, rather than an overall QOL assessment of college students. There was no research found in the literature that created a valid well - being measure focusing on students' Quality of Life in colleges. Through this investigation, the students can realize the quality of life and sleep quality. The purpose of the study is to investigate the quality of life and sleep quality between physical education and non - physical education students at Pondicherry University. Methods: A hundred participants (both male and female) were selected for the study from Pondicherry University, 50 students from physical education and 50 from other departments. Quota sampling methods were used for the selection of the subject. Quality of life questionnaire WHOQOL - BREF (WHO 1996) and Groninger sleep quality questionnaire (Leppamak et al., 2003) were used as a tool. The entire subject participated and responded to the questionnaire without bias. Results: The result of the study shows that quality of life has no significant difference. But in the case of physical education female students have a significant change in sleep quality when compared to other department non - physical education students. Conclusion: The results concluded that there is no statistically significant difference in quality of life between physical education and non - physical education students. However, in the case of female students and non - physical education, female students have a significant change in sleep quality.
