Survey Reveals How the COVID-19 Pandemic Has Affected International Students

We may slowly be reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet it seems that the effects, especially on international students, are long-term.

These were the findings of a survey conducted for the launch of Yugo, an international student accommodations provider that is student-centric focused. 

The survey revealed that some 66 percent of international students admitted that the pandemic had affected their mental well-being. A lot of them even went as far as to say that the effects could be long-term. 

Of this number, 76 percent were from Spain, 75 percent from Germany, the UK at 74 percent,  and Australia at 72 percent.  To be more specific, 50 percent of students from the UK, Ireland, Germany, and Australia said that the transition to digital learning from face-to-face classes had somehow affected their social interaction skills to a point that many had developed social anxiety.

Beyond this, some 78 percent of the 10,000 surveyed students from 9 countries revealed that they are seriously thinking of altering or have altered their international education plans. This involved deferring their international studies. 

It’s no secret that many education institutions and governments have put in place support systems to help these students, the effects are there and are being felt. Even more telling are the long-term effects that may go beyond the pandemic.
