Abstract:The present study aimed to empirically examine the perceived stress and mental health scores of Psychology students at the University of Twente. More specific, it was the goal to see how demographic variables and Stressors that fall under the categories Performance and Workload influence the stress and mental health that is perceived by students. The study used the Perceived Stress Scale and the Mental Health Continuum – Short Form for the examination of the scores. It was found that both gender and native language are related to stress. This means that German students perceive more stress than their Dutch fellow students, and that women perceive more stress than their male fellow students. Furthermore, the frequency of failing a course correlates with the perception of stress as well, which might lead to fear in failing, which in turn affects performance.
