Abstract

The study of stress among university students in Malaysia is relatively low. The importance of understanding stress include its detrimental effects that may hinder progress and productivity among students, leading to an increase of dropout and low academic achievement. In this study, 288 undergraduate students in UUM responded to the questionnaires, in which the findings suggest three strong determinants as factors of stress, i.e., social factor, academic factor, and environment factor. Findings also found a strong demand for stress management programs for this young adult as a way to combat mental illness.
