MetadataShow full item record
University students perceive stress both from academia and social stressors. Higher stress among students affects physical and psychological functioning leading to a decrease in academic performance and overall life satisfaction. This present study explored the differences in perceived stress and life satisfaction between bachelor and master students and the relationship between perceived stress and life satisfaction during the Covid-19 pandemic. A survey was deployed to measure university students’ life satisfaction and perceived stress. Initially, students overall perceived stress will be presented. Comparisons between bachelor and master university students were explored. Implications about the role of perceived stress in university student’s life's during the pandemic will be discussed. This study found no difference between bachelor and master students regarding stress and life satisfaction. However, a significant model was found between gender, level of study, and life satisfaction on perceived stress with a significant negative relationship between life satisfaction and perceived stress. These results might be attributed to different aspects of students and the personal context a student operates in during their studies.
