The article analyses result of research of the link of student’s perception teacher’s personal qualities and academic’s perfomance. The analysis of theory shows the advantages and disadvantages of each form of education. There are determined the reasons for the decrease or increase in the academic success of education, and prospects for the use of each of the forms of education in higher education in the future. Among the most popular reasons for the decline in academic success of students and full-time and distance learning are: organizational difficulties; psychological difficulties. Specific difficulties for distance learning students are: problems of "beginners" (low computer literacy); technical difficulties (work in different programs); psychological difficulties (lack of live interaction with all members of the educational process, a sense of loneliness). The aim of the study was to identify the relationship between students' ideas about the personality of a university teacher and the academic performance of distance learning students in comparison with full-time students. To achieve the goal of the study, the authors relied on the methodological approaches of A.A. Bodaleva, A.A. Reana, J.L. Kolominsky on the social and perceptual side of communication in the educational process. In the empirical part of the study, the following methods were used: T. Leary's questionnaire, analysis of educational documentation, methods of descriptive and inductive statistics, the method of correlation pleiades. The results of the empirical study showed statistically significant, direct relationships between the academic success of students of both forms of education (full-time and distance learning) and the authoritarian personality traits of the teacher. But, at the same time, among full-time students, a direct relationship was found between academic performance and egocentricity, distance and rivalry of the teacher. And for distance learning students, a statistically significant relationship was found between academic success and the teacher's mistrustful and skeptical attitude towards other people in his character traits. At the same time, among full-time students, a statistically significant inverse relationship was found between academic success and dependence on others, a willingness to listen to the opinions of others.
