This paper addresses the question of mutual relationship of the perceived self-efficacy, well-being and particular health-promoting behaviours in respondents – students of the Faculty of Economics and Management of the Czech University of Life Sciences. A descriptive, correlational research design was conducted. The Czech version of the General Self-Efficacy Scale GSES, Czech version of the Satisfaction with Life Scale SWLS and Czech version of Stress Vulnerability Scale was administered to 211 undergraduate students from September to October 2013. Having tested normal distribution of each variable via Kolmogorov-Smirnov and Shapiro-Wilk test, our statistical analysis was based on the calculation of values of the nonparametric Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Results show significant correlations between all of examined variables. In terms of the examined variables, self-efficacy, behavioural markers connected to vulnerability to stress and well-being in particular appear to be meaningful concepts that can be well used in education and counselling related to coping with stress during university studies.
