International students have been noted to experience stress that affects their learning motivation. This research was done with the aim of determining the perceptions of financial stress and learning motivation as well as establishing if there is a relationship between financial stress and learning motivation. The research used a random sampling technique among 100 international students in Cavite, Philippines as the respondents. The results of the study showed that there is significant relationship between financial stress and learning motivation. International students are moderately experiencing financial stress but disagreed that it is affecting their learning motivation.
