Undergraduate tourism students participated in this study to measure the effects of emotionalexhaustion, cynicism, and professional efficacy (burnout) on vigour, dedication, andabsorption (engagement). The study was carried out at a university in Northern Cyprus. Stepwise regression analysis was employed in order to test the relationships. The results showed that emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and reduced professional efficacy were negatively associated with vigour, dedication, and absorption respectively. In addition, older students, male students, and those who were registered in a 2-year programme encountered more burnout than younger students, female students, and the 4-year programme students, respectively.
