Abstract

Student workload is an issue that has implications for undergraduate student learning, achievement and well-being. Time pressure, although not the only factor that influences students’ workload or their perception of it, is very pivotal to students’ workload. This may vary from one country to the other and maybe affected by cultural differences. The current study investigated the impact of nationality and time pressure on well-being outcomes as well as perceptions of academic stress and academic work efficiency. The study was cross-cultural and cross-sectional in nature and comprised 360 university undergraduates from three distinct cultural backgrounds: White British, Ethnic Minorities (in the United Kingdom) and Nigerian. The findings suggest that time pressure directly or indirectly (i.e. in tandem with nationality) predicted negative outcomes, work efficiency and academic stress. This implies that nationality/ethnicity also plays a role in the process.
