GONCALVES, Nicole Cristina de Almeida et al. Coronavirus Pandemic and Emergency Remote Teaching: perception of the impact on the well-being of university students. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.3, pp.26-39.  Epub 01-Dez-2021. ISSN 1688-7026.

Young people in higher education are more vulnerable to the appearance of psychological symptoms in the context of COVID-19. Also, the adaptation to remote education and other difficulties can affect the well-being of university students. Therefore, this study sought to investigate the perception of well-being and mental health of university students who underwent remote education during quarantine. This is a cross-sectional, exploratory, and descriptive study. The instrument used was “Questionnaire on the perception of social isolation by university students during quarantine of COVID-19”. Using the reference sampling technique, university students released the link to access the online questionnaire to their peers. 497 students participated, most of them women (74.69%), with mean age of 21.71 (SD = 2.85), enrolled in a public higher education institution (HEI) (72.89%). A positive and significant correlation was found (p <0.0001) for academic performance impaired by the adhesion of Emergency Remote Education and the negative perception of mental health and well-being. In the qualitative part, participants noticed anxiety (15.35%), stress (7.3%) and altered sleep (7.67%). About 91.96% of the participants are engaged in self-care and emotional management practices. Therefore, the results converge with the literature and imply that online education can impact well-being and generate insecurity regarding the quality and solidity of academic training. Data from this study suggest that institutions should implement preventive activities regarding students' mental health and adapt remote learning in order to reduce student’s distress.
