Abstract
This study investigated the differences between gender, Irish and migrants on life satisfaction, stress level and self-efficacy and the role of self-efficacy on life satisfaction and stress. Sixty students, who included Irish and non-Irish, participated in the study using convenient sampling methods. Results revealed no significant differences between gender, Irish and migrants on life satisfaction, stress level and self-efficacy. A strong positive relationship was observed between self-efficacy and life satisfaction, however there was no significant interaction effect of self-efficacy and stress level. Research suggests that differences in psychological variables are independent of the nationality in Ireland and stereotypical beliefs may be critical factor in the question about the genders differences. The importance of self-efficacy found in this study was discussed.
