    The main purpose of the master's thesis was to find out how students regulate their emotions during learning. We were interested to learn how capable the students are of regulating their emotions, which strategies they use to do so, how they learn emotion regulation, and how the emotion regulation influences their learning. In the theoretical part of the master's thesis, we defined emotions and their development, described the process and strategies of emotion regulation, and integrated all of this into the educational context. In the empirical part, we used a qualitative research paradigm on a sample of 112 students of the 4 th and 9th grade. We used a combined questionnaire to answer our research questions. The results obtained were analysed using quantitative statistics, while content analysis was used when analysing the answers to the open-ended questions. The results showed that students have a highly developed ability of regulating their emotions, which they self-evaluate similarly, with a somewhat better developed ability in 4th graders compared to 9th graders. The results also showed the predominate strategies the students use to regulate their own emotions during learning (mainly attention deployment and response regulation); the differences in the strategies used based on age; and the influence of the ability of emotion regulation on their learning – it had a positive influence while experiencing positive emotions (joy) and a negative one while experiencing negative emotions (sadness, anger). We believe the results of our research can contribute to raising awareness of the importance of integrating emotions into the learning process, and of systematic teaching and learning of the strategies of emotion regulation, with the purpose of influencing the learning processes, relationships, and other areas of students' lives.
