Sinn Féin spokesperson on Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Rose Conway-Walsh TD, has today launched an online wellbeing survey to capture the impact of Covid-19 on third-level students.

Speaking at the Launch, Teachta Conway-Walsh said:

“We want to hear directly from students in third-level on how they are coping with all the pressures related to Covid-19 and remote and blended learning.

“We are approaching one year of an extraordinary learning experience for college students. Some students have never even visited their campus or met any of their fellow students in person.

“In all likelihood they are facing at least another semester with very limited access if any to campus and all that comes with it.

“We know from students and parents who contact us that Covid has had a significant impact on mental health and wellbeing generally. We are setting out to measure that impact on students.   

“International research has produced alarming results regarding the impact Covid and public health restrictions have had on the mental health and wellbeing of students.

“Despite the huge effort made by all the staff of colleges, remote learning has substantial limitations from an educational perspective. However, the impact of the pandemic on student lives goes far beyond their formal education.

“We want to know how students are coping. What are the key sources of stress and pressure whether it is their living situation, loss of employment, Isolation, etc. We also want to look at the positives what has brought them comfort and helped them through.

“Whatever the issues a student is facing we want to hear from them and give voice to their experience.

“Only by really listening to students will we be able to support and assist them. This is why I am asking student to take a few minutes to complete and share this survey. I want to sincerely thank the SUI and all those who contributed to the design of this important survey.
