Due to globalization, the basic strategic element for universities in Malaysia is internalization. Malaysia higher education has become progressively globalized with a higher number of students enthusiastic to pursue their studies outside of their home countries. While adjusting in a new environment bring many challenges to international students which will influence their mental health. The purpose of this study is to examine factors of self-efficacy, social support, and religion that influence mental health among international students in Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM).

Thus, suggestion are made to the stakeholders, implication are discussed and future research are also indicated.
