Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced students to obey government regulations to conduct online lectures. It is not uncommon for students to feel stressed due to the many demands of lectures and worry about being infected with the virus. This study aims to determine the extent of the effect of resilience on students' psychological distress during the pandemic. The data collection technique is non-empirical and is carried out online and offline. The research subjects were 200 active students pursuing undergraduate education in Malang. The results showed a negative effect between resilience and student psychological distress during the pandemic. Psychological distress in students is dangerous if it is not resolved immediately. The importance of resilience will significantly help students prevent or overcome the stress that occurs primarily during the pandemic. The advantage of this research is that it relates to most students who feel stressed so that it can become new knowledge for students or other readers.
