  • Introduction

    University students, regardless of whether they have just graduated from high schools or have been out of school systems for decades, are going through many challenges in their endeavor to obtain academic qualifications because of differences between school and higher education. This transition from school education to higher education requires students to make many changes and adjustments physically, emotionally, socially and mentally in order to succeed in higher education. There are many issues concerning university students that are worth looking into for researchers, such as academic achievement, motivation, emotion, psychological health, learning, personality, addictions, stress, coping, psychological interventions and other relevant areas. This special issue focuses on issues of concern to university students with the goal of contributing knowledge and understanding on psychology of university students, gaining insights into how to help improve university students’ academic achievement and general well-being and also to develop their full potential and help them to get prepared for the working world. This special issue invites submissions of articles covering all areas of psychological researches that are related to university students. Empirical, theoretical or conceptual, review articles and commentaries are welcome.
