Emotional intelligence is a part of cognitive processing which involves the awareness of own emotions and other and also the ability to facilitate and manage own emotions.

A cross-sectional study has been conducted to study the correlation between emotional intelligence and the psychological well-being of the students due to the impact of COVID-19. This study involves 320 undergraduate students from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. The measurement instrument used to conduct this research are the English version of the Trait Meta Mood Scale-24, and also the EPOCH Measure of Adolescent Well-Being. The hypotheses have been tested by using a Pearson Correlation Coefficient, and the result has shown that there is a strong positive relationship between emotional intelligence and the psychological well-being of students. This indicates, the participants experienced a higher level of emotional intelligence during this pandemic, and it directly affects the students’ psychological well-being which also recorded a high level.
