The only children are closely linked to loneliness since they have no one to share and therefore have had to develop interpersonal relationship skills; In the academic environment, they are one more among many and therefore can have pressure for their university performance. The objective of this article is to study the perceptions of the only children about their experiences in their university interaction. A qualitative study of phenomenological design was developed, in the Faculty of Medicine of the National University of San Agustín Arequipa-Peru, using as a unit of analysis the group of single children from the first to third year, through focus groups to a sample not probabilistic The results include acceptable relationships with parents; concern to foster social relations skills; as well as autonomy and privacy, in property management. In school development, pressured by hopes placed on them; very selective in friendly relations and responsibility of a high standard in their educational notes. However, in the university interaction, having no siblings and therefore insufficient consultation about previous experiences, brings lack of empathy to peers. It is concluded that the only children represent a vulnerable and sensitive group for academic attention.
