The aims of research were to determine the Police University students’ level of physical activity as well as to determine the differences in relation to gender. The total sample consisted of 60 subjects (30 male and 30 female). For assessing the levels of physical activity International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) was used. Based on IPAQ scores (MET), the level of physical activity is classified as high, moderate and low. Results of descriptive statistics showed that the average value for a male student was 8157.63 ± 3365.00 MET, while for a female one it was 3793.57 ± 3152.80 MET. ANOVA results showed that there is a statistically significant difference between genders at the general level (F = 26.870, p = 0.000), as well as at the partial level for high (F = 21.229, p = 0.000) and moderate (F = 31.898, p = 0.000) level of physical activity in favor of males.
