The purpose of the study was to investigate the beliefs of English teachers and students at the tertiary level regarding language learning and autonomy. A descriptive approach was employed to conduct the research. All the teachers and undergraduates of private sector universities of Pakistan were the populations of the study. The snowball and convenience sampling techniques were used to select the sample of the study. The study sample was 330 (30 teachers and 300 undergraduates). The teachers and the students filled out two separate sets of questionnaires. The study demonstrates that students have more control over selecting learning materials and approaches. Teachers also think that students may be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses and evaluate their progress with learning autonomy. The findings of the study would be significant for language teachers, students, and curriculum developers.
