Abstract [sv]

Syftet med vår studie var att undersöka varför vissa högskolestudenter väljer att enbart studera och andra att yrkesarbeta parallellt med studierna. Samt att undersöka om det fanns någon skillnad i hur grupperna, enbart studerande vid högre studier och yrkesarbetande parallellt med studierna, upplevde hälsa, trötthet, stress och ekonomi under studietiden. Deltagarna bestod av studerande på högskola och universitet i Sverige (n=3437) varav 57,9 % var kvinnor och 42,1% var män. Studiens mätinstrument var en enkät som bestod av bland annat frågor om studenten yrkesarbetade under studietiden, självskattning av upplevelsen av hälsa, trötthet, stress och ekonomi. Resultatet analyserades och visade att ekonomiska skäl var den främsta orsaken till att högskolestudenter yrkesarbetade parallellt med studierna. Det fanns en signifikant skillnad mellan grupperna hur de upplevde sin ekonomiska situation, där yrkesarbetande studenter uppgav sin ekonomi som sämre. Det fanns däremot ingen signifikant skillnad mellan grupperna i upplevelse av hälsa, trötthet och stress. En signifikant könsskillnad i resultatet visade att kvinnor upplevde mer trötthet, stress och ohälsa. Slutligen diskuteras studiens resultat samt förslag på vidare forskning.
