Abstract [en]

Self-esteem and Anxiety have been widely studied back-to-back on the premises of academic settings, since research has shown that they interact with eachother. The current study compares the score of self-esteem and anxiety of international students currently studying at Umeå University. Thirty students from Europe and Asia have been accessed respectively through usage of a questionnaire designed for its purpose. Overall, Europeans has higher self-esteem than Asians, however, there is no significant difference between Europeans and Asians regarding to anxiety. When taking the lowest ten subjects and the highest ten subjects’ self-esteem scores and compared them within the two cultural groups, significant difference was shown in anxiety, especially in the high self-esteem group of Asians. Asian Top-10 students’ self-esteem tend to have extra worries than others. The implication of this study suggests whether high self-esteem will also exacerbate the level of anxiety among Asians and buffer the anxiety of Westerns due their higher self-esteem.
