Stress is an adaptative reaction of an organism, human or not, to the demands of fitting in an environment (Kav Vedhara, 1996). When stress originates in an educational context, it is common to refer to it as a student and their mechanisms to adapt and cope with the academic demand. All humans experience stress during their lifetime, but when this overwhelmed feeling is prolonged can affect human behaviour and the ability to deal with physical and emotional pressure, having, as a result, a different range of problems. It is important for higher-level educations institutions, such as colleges and universities, to be aware and have a deep knowledge of the levels of academic stress in their students.
