Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the perceived self-efficacy levels and stress coping behavior scores of university students studying at faculties of sports sciences and physical education and sports schools in terms of gender and exercise variables, and to determine the relationship between students' self-efficacy and stress coping behavior scores.A total of 404 participants, 130 women and 274 men, aged between 18 and 23, studying at the School of Physical Education and Sports, participated in the study in the 2021-2022 academic year. The mean age of the participants was 20.39±1.45. The "convenience sampling" method was used in the selection of the participants. “General Self-Efficacy Scale” and “Styles of Coping with Stress Scale” were used in the research. In the study, t-test was used to compare paired groups, one-way anova analysis to compare multiple groups, and Pearson correlation test was used for relationship analysis. In the study, it was found that there was a significant difference in favor of the total scores of the general self-efficacy scale in terms of the exercise variable in favor of the participants who exercise regularly and exercise occasionally, all sub-dimensions of coping with stress and general self-efficacy of physical education and sports school students. There was no significant difference between the scores of the participants, and the general self-efficacy scale total scores of the participants and the sub-dimensions of coping with stress were not significantly different from the general self-efficacy total scores and the self-confident approach, optimistic approach, and seeking social support, desperate approach, and submissive approach, a negative relationship was also observed. As a result, it has been revealed that the general self-efficacy levels of the students studying at the faculties of sports sciences and physical education and sports colleges who exercise regularly are high, and there is a relationship between exercise and self-efficacy. In addition, perceived self-efficacy was found to be a determining factor in coping with stress.
