Keywords:challenges, Covid-19, postgraduate students, university
The objective of this study was to ascertain the impact and effects of Covid-19 on postgraduate students at a university of technology. A qualitative exploratory research approach was used to guide the study, and semi-structured, in-depth interviews were conducted with postgraduate students (N=10) from the Faculty of Health Sciences. Analysis of the study results indicated that postgraduate students encountered numerous challenges and issues that affected their mental health negatively and hindered their holistic academic experience. Findings of the study suggest that the institution should implement concerted efforts to assist students with psychological, social, and financial support that would reduce the adversity experienced through the Covid-19 pandemic.
