Doctorate students is traditionally a vulnerable group of students due to the big rely on the self-motivation, personal time-management, self-goal-orienting and general social isolation. Research on PhD experience shows the generally high level of anxiety and depression among PhD students comparing to the other groups of students. At the same time international students are traditionally more vulnerable for social changes than the rest of the students which makes this group of a special interest for the research. In this study we focus on the general barriers that international doctoral students faced during the pandemic.
