dc.description.abstractThe study sought to examine the relationship between attachment styles and levels of self-esteem, perceived social support and stress during the transition to university. Participants (N=114) were required to be undertaking their first year of full-time university. Eligible participants were invited to complete an online questionnaire posted to Facebook. The questionnaire was comprised of self-report instruments designed to provide a measure of attachment-related avoidance/anxiety, self-esteem, perceived social support and stress. Pearson’s correlation coefficients found significant negative relationships between attachment-related avoidance and levels of self-esteem and perceived social support. Pearson’s correlation coefficients also found significant negative relationships between attachment-related anxiety and levels of self-esteem and perceived social support as well as a significant positive relationship between attachment-related anxiety and stress. Further research with a larger sample is recommended in order to increase generalisability. Replication of findings may support the development of support structures for students transitioning to university.en
