Emotional intelligence has been highlighted as an importa_nt theoretical and practical construct. It has the potential to enable individuals to cope better and experience less stress. The purpose of the study was to understand and analyze the relationship between Emotional Intelligence and Students' Stress among Chinese Nationals who are studying in UNIMAS. Questionnaires were used as the instrument to collect data. Participants were selected by sample size calculation and a total of 74 sets of questionnaires were valid and analyzed. A correlational research design was employed. The independent variables consist of the four clusters of emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, and relationship management) and gender, while the dependent variable was the students' stress. Descriptive analysis was used to explain the distribution of demographic details such as gender, age, faculty, year of study and causes ofstress. Statistical inferential analysis was used to explain the results of hypotheses and relationship found between tested variables. Pearson Correlation test and Independent t-test were employed to test the hypotheses. Findings of this research revealed that significant relationships exist for self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, and relationship management with students' stress. Meanwhile, it was also focused that there is no significant difference between gender of male and female student's stress among the Chinese nationals who are studying in UNIMAS. Lim;tations and recommendations were highlighted to provide guidelines for future research.
