This study investigated the mediation effect of research skills proficiency on the relationship between core self-evaluations and research engagement among Master of Education students in Uganda. Questionnaire surveys including closed ended questions were administered to two cohorts of the students, 2011/2012 and 2012/2013, (N = 102). Results indicated total mediation effect of research skills proficiency on the relationship between core self-evaluations and research engagement. Implications for educational practice include careful selection and training of adult learners at master's level on the basis of their core self-evaluations levels; individuals with positive core self-evaluations should be accorded priority entry into the programme. Implications for future research include carrying out intervention studies on how to effectively impart 21st century skills in the adult learners.
