VELIZ-BURGOS, Alez  and  URQUIJO, Pedro Apodaca. Level of self-concept, academic self-efficacy and psychological well-being of university students of Temuco city. Salud & Sociedad [online]. 2012, vol.3, n.2, pp.131-150. ISSN 0718-7475.

The objective of this study was to study the level of self-concept, academic self-efficacy and psychological well-being of Chilean university students. We reviewed measures of three scales among 691 subjects. Men were found to have higher levels of emotional and physical self-concept. The older ones had higher standards of academic, emotional, familial and physical self-concept. Students in health sciences had better academic self-concept; those in the field of education enjoyed better social selfconcept, and those from psychology demonstrated the highest emotional and family levels. In academic self-efficacy there was no difference between men and women. In psychological well-being, men had greater autonomy and women had greater control of the environment. Students of health sciences area had the highest levels of the evaluated dimensions.

Keywords : Self-concept; Academic Self-Efficacy; Psychological Well-Being.
