Uncontrolled stress can affect university students' learning performance, health, and wellbeing. Therefore, this research aimed to identify the level of stress social work students face during the COVID-19 pandemic. The quantitative research was conducted by using surveys through Google Form. A total of 127 social work students studying at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, UKM, were selected as respondents. The data were analyzed using descriptive tests. The research results found that the majority of social work students showed moderate levels of stress (88%) to low levels (7.9%) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Only 3.9% of students showed high-stress levels and needed intervention to reduce stress. The research results have implications for the university administration, especially the management of social work programs to provide support programs that reduce stress and improve a healthy lifestyle among students.
