Background: This narrative review aims to summarize the research findings on students’ health in Germany with special focus on stress and mental health, substance use and the relationship between health factors and academic achievement. Results: Existing research shows that German students report a high level of self-perceived health. However, certain symptoms and health complaints as well as mental health problems are frequent among students. Students’ health behaviour is characterised by a relatively high level of physical activity. On the other hand students have a high level of substance use. Conclusion: There is some evidence for a positive association between health and healthy lifestyle and academic achievement of students.
