University Students and COVID-19

University students are being asked to isolate due to either close-contact exposure or after testing positive for COVID-19.

This is likely to have an impact on their physical and emotional wellbeing and therefore we are interested in research contributing to the understanding the short- and longer-term impacts of isolation in students.

This can help to develop future programmes to support students post-COVID-19, or interventions to support students who are isolating.

A research development group is being convened to discuss possible research projects and seek to generate a research proposal for submission to a funding body.
