Being a non-experimental, cross-sectional, and correlational relational study, the sample consisted of 428 participants, the instruments used were the SISCO Academic Stress Inventory (Barraza, 2007) and the Adult Self-Esteem Scale (Coopersmith, 1967). The results indicate that these constructs are inversely related and statistically significant (r = -.397; p <.05); in addition, there is practical significance (-, 397) with a small effect size; There were, it is evidenced that the academic stress variable presents a statistically significant difference (p = .002; p <.050), in relation to sex, when observing the mean values it is said that women (M = 92.33) present more stress academic than men (M = 86.97).
