Studying the impact of COVID-19 on students

(27-04-2020) The coronavirus pandemic has a major impact on all of us, including students. Ghent University researchers are mapping how students experience the psychosocial impact of COVID-19 and how they deal with that challenge.

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted university life. Students may experience stress because of the Covid-19. The outbreak may have had a significant impact on your life (where you live, who you are able to meet in real life, how you can make a living, etc.). 

This study investigates if these changes have impacted your well-being and health.

Complete the questionnaire and let us know how the coronavirus affected you.

The survey is part of a large-scale international study taking place in more than 50 universities/colleges in 26 different countries. The study is coordinated by researchers from UAntwerpen in collaboration with Prof. Piet Bracke from the Department of Sociology (Health and Demographic Research) at UGent.

The results will be useful to our university. They will inform on how to organize future lockdowns. Because this survey is conducted in multiple countries, we will also be able to access the impact of local/national policy on well-being and health in the student population.
