Inability to cope well can result is high attrition rates among higher education students. As such, higher education institutions need to ensure that students are coping well in managing their academic stress and thus will persist to complete their studies. The aim of the presentation is to present the findings of a study conducted to examine the different coping strategies commonly used by higher education students studying in Singapore. The study was conducted using a sample of more than 200 undergraduate students studying in a private institution in Singapore. Through the presentation, this will provide an in-depth perspective on the different dimensions of coping mechanisms engaged by higher education students (active emotion coping, active problem coping, passive emotion coping and passive problem coping) and how these dimensions were associated with academic stress and intentions to persist amongst higher education students.
