Stress is a topic that is widely spoken of in today's society. According to previous research, a high level of stress has a negative impact on our health. The aim of the study was to see if there was any difference in levels of stress between students who have extra work and those that do not. One of the hypotheses of the study was that female students have a higher level of stress than male students. A questionnaire was handed out to the students, Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), and 137 students of whom 89 men 48 women answered. The survey shows the perceived stress levels among the participants. The results showed that there was no significant association between extra work and stress, nor between gender and stress.
