The purpose of this study is to examine the association of self-concept, and perceived social support, on self-esteem and gender difference in self-esteem among students in a private university in Malaysia. The objectives of this study are (1) To identify the relationship between self-concept and self-esteem (2) To determine the relationship between perceived social support and self-esteem, and (3) To measure the differences in self-esteem between male and female students. The study utilized quantitative methods. A total of 197 students participated in the study. The results showed that there was no significant relationship between self-concept and self-esteem. Rather, it was found that there is a significant relationship between perceived social support and self-esteem. Additionally, there was a significant mean difference in the levels of self-esteem between the male and female students, where male has higher self-esteem compared to female students. The concept of self is a common topic in Western settings but not much has been established in the Malaysian context, which is what this study intends to discover. The study suggests that educational institution should serve as a strong social support platform for its student, to enrich their well-being as well as to promote self-esteem.
