Abstract

Currently, the International Health Organizations consider stress a morbidity and should be treated as a public health issue, even more so as a result of the health pandemic experienced. The university student was no stranger to this, suffering the so-called academic stress due to both academic and social factors. To determine the level of this, the SISCO university stress inventory was used, whose purpose was to identify attributes of stress that usually follow undergraduate and graduate students in the course of their university education. It consists of 30 items divided into three dimensions: stressful situations, symptoms (physical, psychological and behavioral reactions) and coping strategies. The results indicated that this inventory has good internal consistency in the total scale and in its dimensions. In terms of validity, the AFE and AFC proved that there are three factors considered in the theoretical model: symptoms, stressors and coping strategies, and the confirmatory analysis indicates an adequate fit for the academic stress model.
