Students' success at university is influenced by their generalised self-ecfficacy beliefs. Previous studies compared these beliefs to individual variables derived from self-concept, family, stress, and self-support research. An holistic approach in this present study was used with data collected from 168 first-year students, to investigate the relationship between generalised self-efficacy beliefs and variables measuring students' self-descriptions, the functioning of their families-of-origin, their daily stress experienced in the university setting, stress management skills they wish to improve and their fear of disclosure in relation to peers.
