The widespread use of the Internet in all areas of life, especially the daily control of social media by the majority of the society, has made it easier for people to access information. Especially for university students in their 20s, accessing online health information is becoming increasingly popular. However, the accuracy of the information accessed through electronic sources needs to be checked. People may face various health problems when they access and apply inaccurate health information over the internet. In this study, it was aimed to determine the e-health literacy levels of students in a Vocational School and to examine them according to various variables. The data were collected between 15 February and 15 March 2024. The population of the study consists of 435 students who are actively continuing their education at Isparta University of Applied Sciences Senirkent Vocational School. This study was approved by the decision of Isparta University of Applied Sciences Scientific Research and Publication Ethics Board dated 12.02.2024 and numbered 181/02. In addition, Senirkent Vocational School Directorate gave permission for scientific study with the letter dated 15.02.2024 and numbered 87325 to apply the questionnaire to the students. The sample was not selected, and all students attending the school in the Spring term of the 2023-2024 academic year were tried to be reached. Data were collected through a questionnaire using the "Student Descriptive Information Form" and "e-Health Literacy Scale". Qualitative data were digitised and made suitable for analysis. Questionnaires that were not suitable for analysis were excluded from the study. Standard deviation, frequency-percentage, arithmetic mean, independent sample t test for comparing paired groups, ANOVA for comparing multiple groups and LSD method from Post-Hoc analyses were used in SPSS programme. Of the participants, 129 were female, 70 were male; 133 were 1st year, 66 were 2nd year students; 102 were Management of Health Institutions, 59 were Opticianry, 24 were Construction Technologies, 14 were Computer Programming students. The e-health literacy scores of the 2nd year students were found to be significantly higher than the 1st year participants. Among the programmes in the school, it was found that the scores of the Management of Health Institutions students were significantly higher than those of Opticianry and Computer Programming students. It is recommended to raise awareness about the subject in the whole society with various trainings by including individuals with high health literacy level.
