Stress perçu et santé physique des doctorants dans les universités françaises

Résumé : Abstract Few studies have focused on PhD students in France despite the fact that this population appears to be particularly vulnerable to stress and often faces precariousness. This research investigated associations between socio-demographic factors, health behaviours, perceived stress and physical health in a wide sample of PhD students (N = 1923) in order to have a better understanding of this population's specificities. Our results indicated that stress is a critical issue among PhD candidates. Predictors of perceived stress were: gender, age, satisfaction with supervision, sleep quality and sports practice. Findings from this study confirm the relevance of the transactional model to investigate students' health issues and suggest that physical activity and stress management should be encouraged through health promotion programs. Keywords: health; higher education; perceived stress; sleep quality; physical activity.
