 The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of communication skills and social support on university students’ quality of life. Two hundred ten undergraduate students completed the WHOQOL26, which measures quality of life; the ENDCOREs scale, which measures general communication skills; and the social support scale. We used structural equation modeling to evaluate the hypothetical model. The model hypothesized a sequential linkage from communication skills directly to quality of life and a linkage from communication skills to quality of life through social support. Structural equation modeling revealed that communication skills had a significant positive effect on social support and quality of life. Further, communication skills positively affected quality of life directly and indirectly via social support. Specific communication skills such as expressivity, other acceptance, and regulation of interpersonal relationships enhanced quality of life via another subcomponent of social support, companionship.
