Abstract

Background: The aim of this study is to investigate the study-/work-related behavior and experience patterns of students, taking into account their origins as well as the stressful general conditions.

Methods: A total of 194 students (41.8% women, 58.2% men, 58.7% German and 41.3% international students) were evaluated to their strains during the study and study-/work-related Behavior and Experience Patterns (AVEM). Four potentially stressful conditions were taken into account.

Results: For only 14% of international students, but 45% of German students risk patterns for work-related behavior and experience were found. Study-/work-related behaviour and expe-rience patterns depend on the origin of the students. Resources during study were significantly higher among students of German origin.

Conclusions: A study-related strengthening of resources is necessary, which can be viewed as a competitive advantage when choosing a study location.
