Abstract:

The main aim of the research was to answer the research questions: how the science went – studying Polishuniversity students in the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and what were the main barriers to learning for Polish students during the COVID-19 pandemic. A survey methodh as been applied to collect empirical material among students. In the survey, CAWI (Computer-AssistedWeb Interview) Internet questionnaire, sent via e-mail to students in the form of the invitation to the survey with a link to the survey, has been used in the survey. Research shows that the vast majority of the students felt anxiety, uncertainty about taking their maturity examinations, bachelor’s and master’s degree examinations and having the academic year credited on time. The main inhibitor preventing the respondents from learning at home during the ongoing pandemic was a lack of silence – quietness due to the noise of the siblings as well as remote work of the parents who had to perform their remote work during the students’ classes.
