The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the situation in education. In order to ensure the safety of students’ health during the outbreak of the epidemic on the territory of the Russian Federation, all higher education institutions have switched to distance learning. The consequences of this large-scale experiment are yet to be evaluated. The aim of this study consisted of examining satisfaction with distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. An online survey was conducted in June 2020. The interviewees included 268 students. Distance learning currently serves as a backup option or an additional element to the traditional form of education. The experience received by students during the pandemic did not generate much interest in distance learning; on the contrary, it was associated with many difficulties. The study revealed the most reactive position of the majority of students. The results of the research demonstrated that satisfaction with distance learning depended on sex and the year of study. The experience gained during the COVID-19 pandemic highlights that universities should increasingly develop and implement elements of distance learning in order to enhance the willingness of all participants to switch to this form in case of an emergency.
