International / non-local students’ knowledge, experiences, and wellbeing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic
In a recent survey conducted by the School of Graduate Studies of Lingnan University (LU) on international/non-local higher education students’ physical and psychological wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 90 per cent of respondents said the outbreak had caused “moderate to extreme” disruption to learning activities. Over 70 per cent expressed concern about the outbreak, while 45 per cent said they were feeling lonely. The research team advises higher education institutions to find creative and effective ways of supporting international students during this challenging time.
