The current data aims to explore Vietnamese undergraduate students’ attitudes towards research. To measure attitudes towards research, the study used Papanastasiou’s Revised Attitude Towards Research (R-ATR) scale (2014). This scale consisted of 13 items with three factors: research usefulness (4 items), research anxiety (5 items) and positive research predispositions (4 items). Data were collected by a questionnaire survey on a convenient sample of 520 undergraduate students from six universities in Vietnam. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data. The findings indicated that the levels of the students’ attitudes were high in the factor of research usefulness and the positive research predispositions
