The relationship between academic stress and autonomy, competence and relatedness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Rapporter har visat på ökad sjukskrivningsgrad bland akademiker samt att studenter generellt känner sig stressade. Syftet med denna studie var undersöka sambandet mellan stress kopplat till akademiska studier och de psykologiska behoven autonomi, kompetens och tillhörighet, utifrån Self-determination teorin. Studien genomfördes på 142 universitetsstudenter. För att mäta psykologiska behov användes Basic Psychological Need Satisfaction in General Scale (BPNS-G) och för att mäta stress användes delar av The Perception of Academic Stress Scale (PAS). Resultatet visar på signifikanta korrelationer mellan de psykologiska behoven och stress. Signifikanta skillnader mellan kön erhölls i samtliga stressfaktorer samt total stress. Kvinnor skattade sig lägre än män, vilket står i motsats till tidigare rapporter. Skillnaden i kön kan förklaras genom att stressen som universitetsstudenten upplever kommer från andra källor än den akademiska världen.

Abstract [en]

Studies have shown on an increasing of sick leave among academics and that students feel stressed in general. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between stress connected to academic studies and the psychological needs from Self-determination theory. The study was made with 142 university students. For measuring the psychological needs Basic Psychological Need Satisfaction in General (BPNS-G) was used and for measuring stress parts of The Perception of Academic Stress Scale (PAS) were used. Results show a significant correlation between the psychological need and stress. Significant differences emerged between the sexes in all factors of stress and total stress. Women rated lower than men, which is on the contrary to previous reports. The difference between genders may be explained with that the stress experienced by the university student origin from sources outside the academic world.
