The study investigated life-skills among undergraduate students. The respondents of the survey were 500 young adults aged 18 to 25 years from five universities in Subang Jaya, Malaysia. Life-skills Development Inventory-College Form was used to measure life skills in four domains: interpersonal communication, decision making, health maintenance and identity development. The findings revealed significant gender difference regarding health maintenance. The findings also suggested that educators should provide opportunities for students to practice social skills, so that students will be better prepared in facing challenges in their real life.
