LUCA, Luana; NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  and  QUELUZ, Francine Náthalie Ferraresi Rodrigues. Relationships among coping strategies and academic adaptability in undergraduate students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 169-176. ISSN 1984-7270.

The objective of this research was to verify if undergraduate students with more coping strategies in their repertoire were better adapted to higher education. A total of 927 undergraduate students with a mean age of 26.04 years (SD = 7.66), 60.9% female, answered the Coping Strategies Inventory (IEC) and the Adaptation to Higher Education Questionnaire (QAES). The results showed that coping strategies, in general, correlated positively with a better adaptation to higher education. The data found in this study may serve to subsidize future interventions in undergraduate students aiming to strengthen their coping strategies, and therefore, to improve their academic adaptation.
